Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Cartwright, on the CPR Napinka Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Cartwright-Roblin, was constructed in 1927 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. A 60,600-bushel crib annex was added to it in 1981 then the elevator was replaced, between October 1986 and December 1987, by a 145,100-bushel composite facility. It was opened officially on 13 April 1988. As of early 2017, the elevator and annex were being used for grain storage by a local Hutterite colony.
