Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Graysville, on the CNR Carman Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Dufferin, was built in early 1983 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Closed by Viterra in 2015, the elevator was demolished later that year. However, its scale and office are still standing at the site as of 2020, being used for local weighing.
