Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Maples, Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth)

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

A wooden grain elevator, on the CNR Hartney Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth, was built in 1928 and operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. It was named Maples due to the proximity of a farm at SE4-10-26W, belonging to Col. E. A. C. Hosmer, that had been named “The Maples.” Threatened with rail line abandonment, the building was moved to Virden in July 1964, the first elevator to be moved in Manitoba, where it continued to operate with a newly-built annex and office. It has since been removed from the site.
