Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Kenville, Municipality of Swan Valley West)
A 50,000-bushel elevator at Kenville, on the CNR Preeceville Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Swan Valley West, was built in 1928 by Manitoba Pool on behalf of a local association. Increased in 1940 to 80,000 bushels with an annex made from a former elevator, a second crib annex was added in 1965, by which time its total capacity was 152,000 bushels. Closed around 1997, it was demolished between August and September 1999.
