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

A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Harmsworth, on the CPR Rocanville Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth, was built by W. W. King for the Lake of the Woods Milling Company of Winnipeg in 1910. It was sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1960 and operated by the McAuley Pool Association until it was sold to private interests in 1963. As of early 2016, it is still in use for private grain storage.
