Quick Description: I don't know a lot about the history of this silo, but I'm willing to make some educated guesses until I find out for sure...

This silo stands alone without a barn. There is a house "in front" of it, when viewed from the road. Between the silo and a modern fire department building, though, stands a field maintained by the Town of Penfield, a parking lot with a bulletin board kiosk, and a sign at the road indicating it is Sherwood Fields.
My guess is that the town acquired all the land except the land immediately adjacent to the farmhouse as part of its open space land acquisition project.
There are trails that criss-cross the field, which I noticed are embraced in the winter time by snow mobile owners.
