Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator “B” (Neelin, RM of Argyle)

A wooden grain elevator in the community of Neelin, on the CNR Wakopa Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Argyle, was operated by United Grain Growers until being traded to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1973, becoming its “Pool B” elevator at the site. No vestige remains today.
