Megargel is a small West Texas town in Archer County, Texas with a small population of 203 at the 2010 census. When passing through the town, you could blink and you might just miss this little. But, When I passed through town, I found I had to stop and do a little exploring. One of the stops I made was as I was leaving town was a large abandoned grain elevator and silos that can be seen from the highway. As with any abandoned grain elevator, I had to stop and take a look.

Although this town isn’t the smallest town or a ghost town, it does have a quite a few abandoned buildings and cars. One set of abandoned buildings that caught my eyes was the grain elevator and the silos lined up along the highway.This abandoned grain elevator and silos take up a good stretch of what could be prime real estate along the highway if the town grew larger.

Unfortunately, I do not know anything about this abandoned grain elevator and silos. At some point, I plan on doing some research and contact a few leads about its history. Possibly stop by and get some images of this stucture. If anyone has information about this abandoned grain elevator and silos please contact me.

About the Images

These images were shot with my Sony Nex-3N with a Sigma 30mm f2.8 DN E Mount Lens, then I processed it with Adobe Lightroom to crop, straightened, and remove dust spots from the image. Then I post processed the image with Topaz Labs Clarity to add more texture, remove shadows, boost brightness, and contrast. Followed by processing in Topaz Black & White for the right black and white look (black and white image that was posted last).

  1. Hi,
    Like yourself I shoot abandoned cars and buildings in Texas. I came upon your site a few months ago which led me to an awesome road trip to Italy Texas. Can you tell me where the old Ford Fairlane is in Megargel Texas? I hope to go out there soon to do some night shots and that old Ford would be perfect.
    I’ll gladly give you locations on any of the photos I shoot.
