Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A 40,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Selkirk, on the CPR Winnipeg Beach Subdivision, was built in 1948 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Fully renovated in 1971, a 100,000-bushel crib annex was built beside it in 1976, supplementing a 50,000-bushel balloon annex from 1953. Closed by Agricore in October 2000, the facility was demolished in early April 2002.
