Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lake of the Woods Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B (Tilston, Municipality of Two Borders)

A wooden grain elevator in Tilston, on the CPR Alida Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Two Borders, was formerly operated by the Lake of the Woods Milling Company, known for its Five Roses brand of flour whose name still appears on the sides of the building. In 1959, it was taken over by Manitoba Pool Elevators and became known as Pool Elevator “B.”
