Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dominion Grain Elevator / Forsythe Grain Elevator / Province Grain Elevator / Reliance Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator C (Basswood, RM of Oakview)

A wooden grain elevator at Basswood, on the CPR Bredenbury Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview, was built in 1920 for the Dominion Elevator Company. It was owned successively by the Forsythe Elevator Company (1929-1933), Province Elevators Company (1933-1937), and Reliance Grain (1937-1948). Sold to Manitoba Pool in 1948, becoming its Pool C elevator, the facility was closed around 1983 and later demolished.
