Historic Sites of Manitoba: Paterson Grain Elevator (Main Street, Arborg)

A 51,900-bushel wooden grain elevator along Main Street in Arborg was built in 1967 and operated by the Paterson Grain Company. In 1968, two steel tanks were erected beside it, each with a capacity of 15,000 bushels. A 97,000-bushel wooden crib annex was added in 1973. At the time of a 2014 site visit, the facility was no longer serviced by railway tracks. Other elevators that were standing nearby in 1992 have since been removed.
