The Pier 86 Grain Terminal is in Seattle Harbor. It was originally built so that the Cargill Corporation would lease it. (There was a special lump of warmth in my heart for the Cargill Corporation because their salt ponds comprised the flat, flat surroundings of the Redwood City office where I worked.) However, the Cargill Corporation got an even sweeter deal from Tacoma, and moved their grain-loading operation there. But they left the Pier 86 Grain Terminal behind.
