Building #237 - Powder Magazine/Grain Shed

Stored gun powder and grain. The building has a stone foundation and corrugated walls. This design allows the walls to blow out without bringing the roof down, should there be an explosion. Why store grain here too? Grain dust is highly flamabled and a single spark can cause a large explosion.
