Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Douglas, RM of Elton)
A wooden grain elevator at Douglas, on the CPR Carberry Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Elton, was built in 1937 by the Lake of the Woods Milling Company, replacing an earlier elevator dating from 1892. Sold to Ogilvie Milling in 1954 then to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1959, a new crib annex was built beside it in 1968. The facility was closed in July 1984 and later removed from the site.
