Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Ebor, on the CPR Reston Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was built in 1929 for a local cooperative by Manitoba Pool Elevators. An annex was built beside it in 1953, increasing its capacity to 60,000 bushels. The adjacent railway line was abandoned in September 1960 and, as a result, the elevator was closed in August 1961. It continued to be used for grain storage for a few years, after which it was removed from the site. Its concrete foundation was still present at a 2020 site visit.
