Historic Sites of Manitoba: Reliance Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Strathclair, RM of Yellowhead)

Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Strathclair, on the CPR Bredenbury Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead, was once operated by the Reliance Grain Company. Sold to Manitoba Pool in 1948, a new elevator was built beside it in 1957 and the old elevator was converted to an annex. In 1974, the company bought two nearby elevators from United Grain Growers. All have since been removed from the site.
