Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator / Private Grain Elevator (Fredensthal West, Municipality of Emerson-Franklin)
A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Fredensthal West, on the CPR Emerson Subdivision in the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin, was formerly operated by the Manitoba Pool Elevators. Built over the spring and summer of 1952 at Fredensthal on the CNR Ridgeville Subdivision, a crib annex was built beside it in 1955. The elevator was moved to its present site, about four miles away, in 1980 and three steel tanks were added on its south side in mid-1992. Closed by Agricore United in 2002, the complex is now used for private grain storage by a local Hutterite colony.
