Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Crandall, on the CPR Miniota Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Prairie View, was built in 1928 by Manitoba Pool Elevators and known later as Pool A. In 1940, an elevator built before 1901 by Ogilvie Flour Mills and sold in 1928 to Federal Grain, was acquired by Manitoba Pool and operated as Pool B. In 1951, Pool B was moved beside Pool A and converted into an annex. Closed in December 1980, the facility was later demolished.
