Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Angusville, on the CNR Rossburn Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West, was built in 1934 by United Grain Growers, replacing an elevator that had burned earlier that year. It was sold to Federal Grain in October 1968 then re-sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1972. Closed in 1996, the railway tracks have since been removed but the building continues in use by a private company.
