Default Old building, what is it?

I have wondered for years what this old building was used for. It is located on Hwy 39 south of Iola Texas. Anyone have a clue?

My first instinct was it may have been a school, but then I realized that building is probably bigger than the current Iola school Looks lke a factory of somesort, maybe a slaughter house

Looks a bit like a compressor station building. Are there lots of pipelines and/or natural gas production in the area?

I drive by it all year on the way to our lease and I believe the long side of the building runs directly next to the RR track.

Isn't it right next to a train track? Maybe an old train station?

I don't know why you have a deer lease, your Dad won't let you shoot anything!

j/k Collin!

I believe it's an old warehouse for farm products shipping on trains.

Looks like a compound for some weird cult. Don't drink the koolaid. I know that is not what it originally was used for but you never know who might move into these things nowadays.

You're right - I won't let him shoot without my approval.
