Historic Sites of Manitoba: Inter-Ocean Grain Elevator / Pioneer Grain Elevator / Parrish & Heimbecker Grain Elevator (Glossop, RM of Yellowhead)

A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Glossop, on the CPR Bredenbury Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead, was built in 1956 at Elphinstone by Inter-Ocean Grain. In 1972, it was sold to Pioneer Grain and moved to this site. It was re-sold to Parrish & Heimbecker between 2007 and 2008. An associated annex has been removed and its spouts have been modernized.
