Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator / United Grain Growers Grain Elevator (Rathwell, Municipality of Norfolk Treherne)
A 40,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Rathwell, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1928 for a local cooperative association. In the early 1950s, an annex increased its storage capacity to 55,700 bushels then a new annex in 1968 increased it to 117,800 bushels. The facility was traded to United Grain Growers in 1990. Closed around 2000, it was demolished in 2001.
