Historic Sites of Manitoba: Searle Grain Elevator / Federal Grain Elevator (Riverton, Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)
A wooden grain elevator at Riverton, on the CPR Winnipeg Beach Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton, was built in 1937 by Searle Grain, which merged to form Federal Grain in 1966. Sold to Manitoba Pool in 1971, it was moved beside Pool’s elevator and converted into an annex.
