Historic Sites of Manitoba: McCabe Grain Elevator / United Grain Growers Grain Elevator (Newstead, Municipality of Souris-Glenwood)
A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Newstead, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood, was built in 1936 by the McCabe Grain Company. Bought by United Grain Growers in 1968, the elevator was renovated and a balloon annex was moved beside it from nearby Carroll. The facility was closed in June 1982 and removed from the site.
