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

A wooden grain elevator in Ewart, on the CPR Reston Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was built in 1926 and operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. The railway line was abandoned in September 1960 and the elevator closed in August 1961. Five years later, the building was moved to Linklater where it was used as the main elevator and the former elevator was renovated into an annex.
