Historic Sites of Manitoba: Western Canada Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Springhill, RM of Rosedale)
A wooden grain elevator at Springhill on the CNR Rossburn Subdivision, in the Rural Municipality of Rosedale, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1958 to replace a previous elevator (built by Western Canada Flour Mills before 1912 and sold in 1940) destroyed by fire on 27 October 1957. It was closed in December 1976 but used for seed storage for several years until at least 1984. It is no longer present at the site.
