Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator on private property along highway #16 in the Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone was built by Federal Grain at Golden Stream, on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision, in 1956. It replaced an earlier elevator, built in 1935, that was destroyed by fire on 23 July 1955, along with two annexes, an engine house, and 48,000 bushels of grain. Sold to Manitoba Pool in 1972 and closed, it stood vacant for a time before being sold to private ownership and moved to this site.
