City of Broken Arrow Grain Elevator
The City of Broken Arrow news staff reported on how the City of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, successfully acquired a historic grain elevator located off Main Street after winning a competitive bid against local businessman Nick Parker. The city's bid of $250,000 was accepted by Hansen Mueller, the former owner of the grain elevator, following an online auction held last week.

City Manager Michael Spurgeon expressed enthusiasm about the acquisition, stating, "This is incredibly exciting news for Broken Arrow and the citizens who work and live in BA. The grain elevator has become an iconic image standing tall over downtown Broken Arrow, and therefore, the City Council and I felt it was vital to acquire the towers to preserve the historical and cultural character of our community for future generations.”

The city announced that it does not currently have specific plans for the grain elevator but intends to preserve the structure. Many local residents have voiced that the grain elevator is an integral part of the city’s heritage and should be maintained.
