Historic Sites of Manitoba: British America Grain Elevator / United Grain Growers Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B (Dropmore, RM of Riding Mountain West)

A wooden grain elevator at Dropmore, on the CNR Tonkin Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West, was built in 1909 by the British America Elevator Company. Sold to United Grain Growers in 1928 after its elevator was destroyed by fire in December 1927, it was re-sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1948 and designated as Pool B at this site. Closed in July 1971, the elevator was demolished in 1972.
