Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Benito, on the CNR Preeceville Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Swan Valley West, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1952 alongside two older elevators dating from 1913, the larger of which was designated Pool A. Renovations in 1976 involved replacement of Pool A with a modern crib annex. Closed in January 2002, the former Pool B was demolished later that year.
