Historic Sites of Manitoba: Federal Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Wilkes Avenue, RM of Headingley)

A grain elevator was operated by Federal Grain at Mile 10.6 (known in the 1930s as the St. Charles Siding) on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision along Wilkes Avenue in the Rural Municipality of Headingley. Having a capacity of 154,700 bushels, the building was sold in 1972 to Manitoba Pool Elevators. A local management committee was formed in February 1973. Major renovations were undertaken in early 1988. The elevator closed around 2000 and the building was demolished in early 2003.
