Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A composite-style grain elevator at Elkhorn, on the CPR Broadview Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1965, replacing an earlier wooden elevator on the site. Closed temporarily by Agricore in early 2001, then closed permanently in 2002, it was sold into private ownership and remains in use for local grain storage. It is no longer serviced by a railway line.
