Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator (Kelwood, RM of Rosedale)
A 32,000-bushel wooden elevator at Kelwood, on the CNR Neepawa Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Rosedale, was built in 1927 for United Grain Growers. A 25,000-bushel balloon annex was built beside it in 1951. Closed in December 1979, it was sold to the community and later removed from the site.
