“An Oregon wine country landmark just got a makeover, and the Willamette Valley a new star attraction.
The Carlton Grain Elevator dominates the skyline — well, no, it IS the skyline — of the sleepy agricultural crossroads town of Carlton. Several years ago, when I first visited the region, the grain elevator was the landmark for giving directions, as in, “Turn left when you see the grain elevator.” It was a dilapidated structure looming 84 feet over the intersection of Main and Pine streets, with a WPA-style mural extolling Carlton’s burgeoning wine industry.”
