Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in St. Claude, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Grey, was built in 1927 by United Grain Growers to replace an earlier structure dating from 1912 and leased to the Grain Growers Grain Company. A balloon annex was built beside it in 1953. Closed in 1991, the facility was later removed from the site.
