Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator / Private Grain Elevator (Brunkild, RM of Macdonald)

Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Brunkild, on the CNR Carman Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald, was operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. It was later sold to a local company and, at the time of a 2014 site visit, was still being used for private grain storage. An adjacent United Grain Growers grain elevator, present in the early 1990s, has been removed.
