Squint Shot 102909

All around Fowlerville, silos can be spotted. This one, lovingly referred to as "silo city," can be found a few miles north of Fowlerville.
Have you ever wondered where the word "silo" came from? It can be traced back to the Greek word "siros" meaning "a pit to keep corn in." It is also found in the Roman Iberian language by the word "zilo" meaning "dugout, cave or shelter for keeping grain."
