The Valley Park Elevator was built in 1887, however established in 1874 by Gerhard H. Timmerman, owner of the Valley Park Milling Company. It is the last grain elevator in St. Louis County. It consists of two frame buildings connected by a one-story scale pit shelter. A hardware store or “working house” is separate from the elevator itself, called the “bin.” The picturesque quality and continued usefulness of the elevator were threatened by the widening of Meramec Station Road, in which the front porch and one corner of the hardware store were taken off, but a new entrance was created on the south side of the building.  The elevator was sold several times over the years until the Grellner family purchased the elevator in 1976 and have run the elevator and hardware store ever since.
