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

This wooden grain elevator in Elgin, on the CNR Hartney Subdivision in the Municipality of Grassland, was built in 1928 by the Canadian Consolidated Grain Company. Sold to United Grain Growers in 1959, it was thoroughly renovated in 1965 and, the following year, a balloon annex from the nearby Paterson elevator was moved beside it. Closed in 1985, the elevator was later removed from the site.
