Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Elevator Road, RM of Headingley)
Two wooden grain elevators operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators once stood at Headingley on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision. Elevator “A” was built around 1912 by Western Canada Flour Mills. It was later moved to the Sturgeon Creek Hutterite Colony in the RM of Rosser, where it still stands today. Elevator “B” was built in 1952, with an initial capacity of 50,000 bushels. Augmented with a 114,000-bushel crib annex in 1968, the facility was renovated in 1975. Closed in 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.
