Lapham Feed and Grain

Lapham Feed and Grain, Inc. was started in 1956 by Richard and Eula Lapham who moved to South Raub from Decatur, Illinois; it was sometimes called the South Raub Elevator by many of the farmers. On November 24, 1959, there was a 20-car coal train wreck which demolished the west side of the elevator. There were no injuries and the elevator was rebuilt.
