Historic Sites of Manitoba: Paterson Grain Elevator (Waskada, Municipality of Brenda-Waskada)

A wooden grain elevator in Waskada, on the CPR Lyleton Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Brenda-Waskada, was built in 1927, replacing two earlier elevators at the site, and operated by Paterson Grain. In 1940, a temporary 20,000-bushel annex was built beside it. A 48,000-bushel crib annex was constructed in 1952 and a 28,000-bushel crib annex was built in 1963. Major renovations to the elevator occurred in 1958. All were present in the mid-1970s at the time of the Grain Handling and Transportation Commission but have been removed from the site since then.
