Long Description:

The Knowles Grain Elevator was constructed in 1913 for the Sappington Grain Company. It was a line elevator on the Wichita Falls and Northwestern Railway which began servicing the town in the summer of 1912. The elevator is a woodframe elevator sheathed in corrugated metal. The elevator serviced eastern Beaver County until the Great Depression and Dust Bowl led to it being abandoned.

The elevator was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
