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 acquired by Federal Grain Limited in November 1962 and operated until 1972. It was later the “B” elevator for Manitoba Pool Elevators.
