Historic Sites of Manitoba: Paterson Grain Elevator (Teulon)

A 28,400-bushel wooden grain elevator in Teulon was built in 1939 and operated by the Paterson Grain Company. In 1951, a 46,000-bushel wooden crib annex was built beside it and three steel tanks were erected in 1960. Once served by the CPR Arborg Subdivision, the line has been closed and the rails have been removed. Grain is now trucked to a large terminal on the edge of Winnipeg or directly to market.
