Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Elevator Road, RM of Headingley)
Two wooden grain elevators operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators once stood at Headingley on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision. Elevator A was built around 1912 by Western Canada Flour Mills. It was later moved to the Sturgeon Creek Hutterite Colony in the RM of Rosser, where it still stands today. Elevator B was built in 1952, with an initial capacity of 50,000 bushels. Augmented with a 114,000-bushel crib annex in 1968, the facility was renovated in 1975. Closed in November 1996, it reopened temporarily in 1997 to handle grain displaced from the Red River Valley by a major flood but was demolished in March 1999.
