Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Vista, on the CNR Rossburn Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Rossburn, was built in 1940 by Manitoba Pool Elevators for a local cooperative association. It closed in July 1968 and, that October, was sold to United Grain Growers, becoming UGG No. 2. It has since been removed from the site.
