Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Colby, Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone)
A wooden grain elevator at Colby, on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision in the Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone, was built around 1949 by the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society. Its initial 28,000-bushel capacity was expanded to 60,000 bushels by a new annex constructed between 1952 and 1953. Sold to Manitoba Pool in 1973, it was closed in 1984 and later removed from the site.
