Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator A / Pioneer Grain Elevator (Dauphin)

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

A composite (combined elevator and annex) grain elevator at Dauphin on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators between September 1984 and June 1985, and opened officially on 23 July 1985, replacing the former “Pool A” elevator on First Avenue in Dauphin. Initially designed to store 206,700 bushels of grain, its capacity was increased to 350,000 bushels in 1997 and 740,000 bushels in 2004 through the addition of several steel tanks beside it. Operated by Pool successors Agricore (1998-2001) and Agricore United (2001-2007), the facility was sold to Pioneer Grain in 2007. The composite elevator was demolished in March 2015 and replaced by slipform concrete silos.
