Flour bin at Zoar

Zoar Village in Ohio has a gorgeous flour bin in their 1845 bakery.  The top lid was made from one large width of wood and was constructed by community members.

The German communal society was founded in 1817 by the Society of Separatists of Zoar.  Many of the original buildings are part of the museum Zoar Village.  Greenhouse and gardens:
Save Historic Zoar is a website to inform the public of the extreme danger that the museum buildings and private homes face by being located next to the 75 year old Tuscarawas River levee.    Zoar is now on the list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.

A previous posting contained photos of 'supersized' elaborate bread boxes from France called Panetieres.      HERE
