Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ogilvie Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator / United Grain Growers Grain Elevator 3 (Oak River, Municipality of Riverdale)
A 33,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Oak River, on the CPR Miniota Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Riverdale, was built by Ogilvie Flour Mills before 1911 and sold in 1959 to Manitoba Pool then to United Grain Growers in 1974. Closed on 31 December 1980 when the railway line was abandoned, it was leased to the Deerboine Hutterite Colony for local grain storage. The lease was cancelled in November 2008 and the elevator was demolished.
