Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Elgin, on the CNR Hartney Subdivision in the Municipality of Grassland, was built in 1926 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. In 1951, a balloon annex increased its capacity from 50,000 to 80,000 bushels. A second balloon annex was constructed the following year. The entire complex has since been removed from the site.
