Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Harte, Municipality of North Cypress-Langford)

Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

The former Manitoba Pool grain elevator at the railway siding of Harte, on the CPR Cabot Subdivision in the Municipality of North Cypress-Langford, was built between 1973 and 1974 as an early example of the composite type in which the elevator and annex are built as one solid unit. The Harte elevator featured two legs and its 27 bins could hold 165,000 bushels. It was one of the first elevators whose scale could operate in Imperial and metric units interchangeably. When it opened in late-June 1974, the nearby elevator at Oberon, considered too old and inefficient, was closed. Harte was closed by Agricore United in 2001 and sold at tender the following year.
