Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator C (Bowsman, Municipality of Minitonas-Bowsman)
A wooden grain elevator at Bowsman, on the CNR Erwood Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Minitonas-Bowsman, was built in 1951 by Manitoba Pool Elevators, becoming its third elevator here and being designated Pool C. A crib annex was built on its north side in 1966. Fully renovated in 1982, it became Pool A when the remaining Pool elevators were demolished in 1983. Two steel tanks were erected on its south side in 1993. The facility was closed by Viterra in February 2008 and demolished in February 2010.
