Historic Sites of Manitoba: Reliance Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevators A, B and C (Newdale, Municipality of Harrison Park)

Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A 25,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Newdale, on the CPR Bredenbury Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Harrison Park, was built around 1933 by the Province Elevator Company and sold in 1936 to Reliance Grain. Re-sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1947, it became Pool A when, in 1951, a 50,000-bushel elevator known as Pool B was constructed nearby. In late 1979, a 35,000-bushel Lake of the Woods Milling elevator dating from 1925 that Pool had purchased in 1959 was moved beside the B elevator and renovated into an annex, while a new crib annex was built on the other side of B. The original A elevator was dismantled between 1980 and 1981. When a nearby Cargill Grain elevator was purchased by Pool in 1995, it was redesignated as Pool C. The Pool B facility was closed by Agricore in June 2001 and demolished in 2004.
