Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Miami, on the CNR Miami Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Thompson, was built in the summer of 1946 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. It opened officially on 22 August 1946. An elevator built in 1938 was moved here and converted into an annex in 1974. The elevator was renovated in 1973 and 1988. Closed around 2001, the complex has since been removed from the site.
