Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

Two wooden grain elevators once stood at this site on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Headingley. Elevator “A” was built around 1920 and was used into the 1980s. It was later moved to the Sturgeon Creek Hutterite Colony in the RM of Rosser, where it still stands today. Elevator “B” was built around 1953, with a capacity of 45,400 bushels, and was closed on 1 November 1996. It reopened temporarily in 1997 to handle grain displaced from the Red River Valley by a major flood but was demolished in March 1999.
