Granaries were used to dry seeds for the family to use to sow crops the next growing season.
This small granary was built on the Ziegenspeck Farm, located on Harrisburg Pike just south of St. Rt. 665, around 1927.
Steve and Trudy Funk purchased the farm in 2003 and donated the granary to the Southwest Franklin County Historical Society and the City of Grove City in 2014.
