Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator (Indian Springs, Swan Lake First Nation)
A 55,000-bushel grain elevator and balloon annex at the railway siding of Indian Springs, on the CNR Carman Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Lorne (now part of the Swan Lake First Nation), was built by United Grain Growers in 1951, replacing an earlier elevator at the site constructed around 1916. The facility closed on 5 December 1975 and was demolished during the summer of 1976.
