Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A 51,000-bushel wooden grain elevator in Oakburn, on the CNR Rossburn Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead, was built in 1965 by Manitoba Pool Elevators, replacing an earlier elevator that stood on the opposite end of the annex. The crib annex was constructed the 1950 and enlarged by 36,000 bushels in 1967. The facility was closed in April 1996, when the adjacent railway line was abandoned, and sold by tender.
