Someone is trying to save the iconic grain elevators in Saskatchewan

A woman in Saskatchewan has turned to Twitter in an effort to save her family's historic grain elevators. 

Candice Bauer posted the call out to Twitter earlier this week, asking if anyone could help her navigate the process of preserving her family's 'iconic' grain elevators that her father and uncle own. 

Bauer pointed out on Twitter that the elevators have become a huge hotspot for photographers.

Grain elevators hold a huge amount of cultural significance in Saskatchewan, as much of the province is covered with the industrial buildings. 

Saskatchewan has the largest number of grain elevators in the country, but many continue to get torn down as they age and become unstable. 

Bauer's call out for help has garnered a lot of attention since she posted. Many people have responded saying that they have memories of the specific elevators, or know of others that they wish could've been preserved. 

In Lepine, there are two elevators remaining. One was a Saskatchewan Wheat Pool elevator and the other belonged to the United Grain Growers, according to Grain Elevators of Canada.
