Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A 40,000-bushel wooden grain elevator in McTavish, on the CPR La Riviere Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Morris, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1937. For increased storage capacity during the Second World War, two temporary balloon annexes were built in 1940-1941 and 1941-1942. They were replaced by a single crib annex built in 1966, joining an Overgaard annex built in 1954. Extensive renovations were made in 1970 and 1977. Closed by Agricore in 2002, the elevator was demolished in 2003.
