Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator D / Private Grain Elevator (Gilbert Plains, Municipality of Gilbert Plains)
In 1969, a composite-style elevator was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators at Gilbert Plains, on the CNR Togo Subdivision in the Municipality of Gibert Plains. The new 192,500-bushel Pool D sat immediately east of the former D, a 53,500-bushel crib elevator and balloon annex combination that had once belonged to Ogilvie Flour Mills. The old elevator stood alongside the new one until sometime in the 1970s. Renovated in 1982 and 1990, the elevator was closed by Agricore in May 2001, then sold to local interests who continue to use it for grain storage.
