Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B / Private Grain Elevator (Hartney, Municipality of Grassland)
In 1969, Manitoba Pool Elevators built a 50,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Hartney, on the CPR Estevan Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Grassland, as its B facility, in addition to the A elevator on the CNR Hartney Subdivision. In 1978, the A elevator was left without rail service by closure of the line between Elgin and Scarth. Two years later, its 30,000-bushel crib annex was moved to the south side of B. In 1986, two 18,000-bushel steel tanks, constructed on B's north side, boosted the total capacity to about 118,000 bushels. Closed by Agricore in 2000, the facility was sold and remains in use for private grain storage.
