Historic Sites of Manitoba: Federal Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B (Langruth, Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone)

A wooden grain elevator at Langruth, on the CNR Oakland Subdivision, was built around 1918 by the McMillan Grain Company. It was owned successively by the Spencer Grain Company (1920-1929), Western Grain Company (1929-1932), and Federal Grain Company (1932-1972). In 1972, it was sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators, becoming its B elevator at this point. The last record of its operation is from 1975 after which its fate is unknown. No vestige remains at the site.
