Country grain elevators have been called "prairie cathedrals," a description that clicks with photographer Bruce Selyem, who has taken thousands of photos of grain elevators throughout America. Selyem founded the Country Grain Elevator Historical Society, based in Bozeman (pop. 27,509), to promote their preservation.
