Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in the village of Dunrea, on the CNR Hartney Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Prairie Lakes, was built in 1928 by the Manitoba Pool Elevators. Renovated in 1983 and 1987, an annex was built beside it in 1968. The entire complex has since been removed from the site.
