1. Corn Crib Marker
Inscription.  In the 1800's a corn crib was the place to dry and store corn. After harvesting, corn on the cob was placed in the crib. Air circulated through the slats in the side to allow the corn to dry. The kernels were then removed from the cob and stored in barrels until the corn was to be used either for milling into corn meal or used as feed for livestock.
