Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator #2 (Griswold, RM of Sifton)

Two wooden grain elevators in Griswold, on the CPR Broadview Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Sifton, were purchased by Manitoba Pool from Ogilvie Milling in 1960 then re-sold to United Grain Growers. They were operated as a unit by the agent from the #1 elevator nearby, with the larger elevator designated as #2 and the smaller one as #3. When the #3 elevator began to lean over the railway siding, it was demolished in 1980. The #2 elevator was closed in 1996 and removed from the site.
