A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Arborg, on the CPR Arborg Subdivision, was built in 1940 by Manitoba Pool Elevators, the company’s first elevator at this site. Eight years later, when a second Pool elevator was constructed, it became known as Pool B and the younger elevator became Pool A. Closed in 1994, it was demolished in March 2002.
