Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Clanwilliam, RM of Minto-Odanah)

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

A 40,000-bushel grain elevator in Clanwilliam, on the CNR Rossburn Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Minto-Odanah, was built in 1928 and operated by a cooperative association affiliated with Manitoba Pool Elevators. By the 1960s, it had a balloon annex on one side and an older, smaller elevator on the other. In 1982, the elevator was fully modernized, the balloon annex was removed, and a new crib annex replaced the old elevator. Closed in April 1996 when the railway line was abandoned, the facility had not been used for several years. Its metal cladding was damaged in numerous places and the exposed wood was deteriorating. It was demolished in February 2018.
