Historic Sites of Manitoba: Northern Grain Elevator / National Grain Elevator / Cargill Grain Elevator (Fork River, RM of Mossey River)

A wooden grain elevator at Fork River, on the CNR Winnipegosis Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Mossey River, was built around 1913 by the Northern Elevator Company and merged into National Grain in 1940. Its initial 30,000-bushel capacity was increased to 68,000 bushels (1951) and 105,000 bushels (1956). Sold to Cargill Grain in 1975, it was closed the following year.
