Historic Sites of Manitoba: Federal Grain Elevator (Argyle, RM of Rockwood)

A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Argyle, on the CNR Inwood Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Rockwood, was constructed around 1941 by Federal Grain to replace a smaller structure built in 1918 by Arthur J. Lobb and sold around 1922 to Wiley and Low. Sold to Manitoba Pool in 1972, the elevator was dismantled between 1972 and 1973.
