Historic Sites of Manitoba: Federal Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Bergen Siding, RM of Rosser)
A 63,400-bushel wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Bergen, on the CPR Carberry Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Rosser, was constructed in 1965 by Federal Grain. A crib annex was built beside it in the fall of 1970, increasing its capacity to 153,400 bushels. Sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1972, it was closed in late 1987 and demolished in October 1988, replaced by a newly-constructed concrete elevator near Rosser.
