Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Menteith, Municipality of Souris-Glenwood)
A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Menteith, on the CPR Estevan Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood, was constructed by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1927. Its original 40,000-bushel capacity was increased to 90,000 bushels with the addition of an annex added in 1953. Closed in December 1988, the elevator was later removed from the site.
