Historic Sites of Manitoba: Reliance Grain Elevator B / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B / United Grain Growers Grain Elevator 3 (Inglis, RM of Riding Mountain West)

A wooden grain elevator at Inglis, on the CPR Russell Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West, was built in 1940 by Reliance Grain beside a smaller one. These two elevators, once connected and operated from one office, were sold to Manitoba Pool in 1952. In 1971, during a friendly exchange involving United Grain Growers, Pool, and Paterson to consolidate shipping points, Pool sold its two Inglis elevators to UGG.
