Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator (Rignold, RM of Portage la Prairie)
Constructed in the summer of 1938, a wooden elevator at Rignold (formerly Ridgeway) on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision, in the Rural Municipality of Portage la Prairie, was operated by United Grain Growers. An annex was added to it in 1955, bringing its total capacity to 82,000 bushels. Closed in 1994, the facility is no longer present at the site.
