Historic Sites of Manitoba: Northern Grain Elevator / National Grain Elevator / Cargill Grain Elevator (Floors, RM of Oakview)

A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Floors, on the CPR Miniota Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview, was built by the Northern Elevator Company in 1924. Following the 1940 merger of this company with British America Elevator Company and National Elevator Company to form National Grain, it was operated by the new company until 1977 when it was sold to Cargill Grain. The railway line was abandoned in December 1980 and the elevator was closed. It was later removed from the site.
