Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

In 1928, a 40,000-bushel wooden grain elevator was constructed at the railway siding of Dand, on the CPR Boissevain Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, and operated by a co-operative association affiliated with Manitoba Pool Elevators. A 30,000-bushel balloon annex was built beside it in 1951. Closed in December 1974, the elevator was later removed from the site.
