Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Holland, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Victoria, was built in 1927 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Its modest 50,000-bushel capacity was enlarged with a squat 75,000-bushel Overgaard annex in 1952 and a taller 85,000-bushel crib annex in 1958. The elevator was completely renovated in 1982 and the Overgaard annex was removed around 1994. It survived the transfer to Agricore in 1998 but closed in 2001 and was demolished in early December 2003.
