Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B (Chillon, RM of Ellice-Archie)
A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at the siding of Chillon, on the CPR Bredenbury Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Ellice-Archie, was built in 1921 by United Grain Growers to replace an elevator destroyed by fire. Expanded in 1952 with a balloon annex, it was sold to Manitoba Pool in 1960. Closed in mid-1971, the elevator was demolished in 1972.
