History on a Pinhead

If there is any history to the place named Lee, the chances are good it revolves around the silo / elevator.

A timeline of Lee's history would undoubtedly be divided into BS (before the silo) and AS (after the silo).

Thanks to our intrepid and indefatigable photographer, we can see that the AS era has been notably slow on progress, with nary a "coming soon" sign in sight.

Lee is also bereft of a historical marker, suggesting that the BS era probably established the long tradition of nothing happening.


Photographer's Note:

"Lee is located on US 60 about 7 miles southwest of Panhandle. The Silo is it." - Barclay Gibson
