Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cargill Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator A / Private Grain Elevator (Solsgirth, Municipality of Prairie View)

A wooden grain elevator in Solsgirth, on the CPR Bredenbury Subdivision in the Municipality of Prairie View, was built by Cargill Grain. In June 1995, it was traded to Manitoba Pool Elevators. Closed by Agricore United in 2002, it is now used for private grain storage.
