Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lake of the Woods Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Methven, Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa)

A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Methven, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa, was built around 1891 by Lake of the Woods Milling. Sold to Ogilvie Flour Mills in 1954, it was re-sold to Manitoba Pool in 1959. The elevator was closed in 1968 and removed from the site.
