Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Minnedosa, on the CPR Minnedosa Subdivision, was built in 1929 by Manitoba Pool Elevators and a new crib annex was built beside it in 1969. The company had three elevators at this point, including two elevators (B and C) situated east of an elevator belonging to United Grain Growers. Closed in 1999 when a new, larger elevator was opened on the west side of town, the Pool A elevator and annex were demolished.
