Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B / Private Grain Elevator (Cromer, RM of Pipestone)

Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Cromer, on the CNR Cromer Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was built by United Grain Growers at Butler and moved here in late 1964. A large crib annex was also built beside it. Traded in 1979 to Manitoba Pool Elevators and later demolished, the Pool A elevator, formerly from Woodnorth, was moved to the west side of the annex. Closed by Agricore in 2002, the facility was in use for private grain storage at the time of a 2014 site visit.
