Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator / Private Grain Elevator (Justice, RM of Elton)

Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Justice, on the CNR Rivers Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Elton, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1928, and renovated in 1966 and 1993. A 27-bin crib annex was constructed beside it in 1977. Closed by Agricore in 2001, the facility was no longer serviced by a railway line but it continued in use for private grain storage. In October 2018, it was demolished and the remaining wood was burned.
