Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevators A and B (First Avenue SW, Dauphin)

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

A 50,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Dauphin on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision was built for a local association of farmers by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1927. It became known as “Pool B” when a new 40,000-bushel elevator designated “Pool A” was built beside it in 1948. Needing additional storage capacity by 1951, a balloon annex was built beside B while a new crib annex was attached to A, increasing their cumulative capacities to 95,000 and 115,000 bushels, respectively. The Pool B elevator was closed by 1983 and later demolished. The Pool A elevator closed in 1985 when a newly-built elevator on the edge of town opened.
