Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Lenore, on the CPR Lenore Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth, was built in 1927 by Manitoba Pool Elevators on behalf of the Lenore Co-operative Elevator Association. A balloon annex was built on its west side in 1950. The elevator closed in 1980 when the railway line was abandoned and was sold for local grain storage. At the time of a 2015 site visit, the building appeared not to be in active use.
