Historic Sites of Manitoba: Federal Grain Elevator (Snowflake, RM of Pembina)

A wooden grain elevator at Snowflake, on the now-abandoned CPR Snowflake Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pembina, was built in 1962 by Federal Grain Limited, using lumber salvaged from its former elevator at Fallison, and operated until 1972. It was later the “B” elevator for Manitoba Pool Elevators.
