Historic Sites of Manitoba: Union Grain Elevator / Federal Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Laurier, Municipality of Ste. Rose)

Built around 1918 by the Union Grain Company, a 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Laurier, on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Ste. Rose, became part of Federal Grain when the companies merged in 1929. Annexes were built beside it in 1951 and 1957. Sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in early 1972, the facility was closed in December 1976 and was later removed from the site.
