Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Sugar Company Plant (555 Hervo Street, Winnipeg)

A complex of red brick buildings and five large concrete silos (three of which built in 1962, and the other two sometime later), in the Fort Garry area of Winnipeg, was formerly the manufacturing plant of the Manitoba Sugar Company. Closed in early 1997, the site is now occupied by several other businesses.
