Historic Sites of Manitoba: Maple Leaf Grain Elevator / Federal Grain Elevator / Private Grain Elevator (Purves, Municipality of Louise)
A wooden grain elevator at Purves in what is now the Municipality of Louise, on the now-abandoned CPR Snowflake Subdivision, was built around 1910 by Maple Leaf Milling. Sold to Federal Grain in 1929, it was re-sold in 1972 to Manitoba Pool Elevators and closed soon afterward. It is still in use for private grain storage, one of the oldest surviving elevators—and the only Maple Leaf elevator—in Manitoba.
