Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society Grain Elevator (Glass, RM of Springfield)

A disused wooden grain elevator in the Rural Municipality of Springfield was formerly used by the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society to buy prairie grain to supply its flour mills in Scotland. Formerly on the Canadian National Railway line at the siding of Glass, it was moved about two miles northwest of the original site (about N49.88428, W96.72768) but was demolished sometime in 2015.
