Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator (Foxwarren, Municipality of Prairie View)
In August 1963, United Grain Growers opened a new 110,000-bushel composite-style (combined elevator and annex) elevator in Foxwarren, on the CPR Bredenbury Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Prairie View, replacing one demolished earlier that year, next to a surviving balloon annex. Among the dignitaries attending the opening ceremony was UGG President A. M. "Mac" Runciman. The facility was demolished by Agricore in December 2000.
