Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Erickson, on the CNR Rossburn Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Clanwilliam-Erickson, was built by the Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1934, replacing one destroyed by fire on 3 November 1933. An annex was built beside it in 1966. Closed in January 1995, the complex has since been removed from the site.
