Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Beulah, Municipality of Prairie View)

Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

This wooden grain elevator near Beulah, on the CNR Rapid City Subdivision in the Municipality of Prairie View, was built in 1927 by the Manitoba Pool Elevators. A six-bin balloon annex was built beside it in 1964 and the elevator was renovated. The facility operated until December 1978 when the adjacent rail line was removed. It was then taken over by a local farmers cooperative, the balloon annex was removed, and it was used until around 2000. The elevator now stands vacant.
