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

A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Enterprise on the CNR Wakopa Subdivision, in the Rural Municipality of Turtle Mountain, was operated by the Paterson Grain Company. Built in the early 20th century by the Young Grain Company, its original 30,000-bushel capacity was increased to 62,000 bushels with a wooden annex. The elevator closed in the 1960s and was sold to a consortium of local farmers who moved it to Killarney.
