Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Kaleida, on the CPR Kaleida Subdivision in the Municipality of Pembina, was built in 1905 for a group of local farmers and sold two year later to the Ogilvie Milling Company. By 1959, when it was sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators and became its B elevator, the original 25,000-bushel capacity had increased to 70,000 bushels with an adjoining annex. The rail line was abandoned in mid-1962 and the elevator closed in July 1963. Sold to private ownership, it was used for several years as a seed-cleaning plant but now stands idle.
