Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Sinclair, on the CPR Arcola Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was formerly operated by the Canadian Consolidated Grain Company. In 1959, all its country elevators were sold to United Grain Growers, which then traded this elevator to Manitoba Pool Elevators. Later privately owned, it was used for a time for local grain storage.
