Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Osborne, on the CPR La Riviere Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald, was built in 1940 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. In 1948, it was demolished and rebuilt as a 40,000-bushel elevator. A crib annex was built beside it in 1956, increasing the total capacity to 100,000 bushels. Closed in August 1971, the elevator was used to store seed and supplies until 1986. It was later removed from the site and its annex was moved to McTavish in 1988.
