Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator on the northeast side of Brandon in the Rural Municipality of Cornwallis was constructed by Manitoba Pool Elevators at a cost of about $1.5 million between 1983 and 1984 and operated as “Pool A” on a CPR line known as the Wheatland Spur. One of Pool's largest elevators at that time, at about 203, 000 bushels, it featured the latest technology and was intended to replace two elevators in Brandon and ones at Forrest and Douglas. It was closed by Agricore United by 2002 and demolished in 2008.
