Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Minto, Municipality of Grassland)

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

A wooden grain elevator in the village of Minto, on the CNR Hartney Subdivision in the Municipality of Grassland, was formerly operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. The tracks were removed when the line was abandoned. The top of the elevator fell over shortly before it was demolished in late 2014, along with the adjacent Paterson grain elevator.
