Historic Sites of Manitoba: United Grain Growers Grain Elevator (Liege, Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester)
A wooden grain elevator at the siding of Liege, on the now-abandoned CNR Wakopa Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, was built in 1927 by the Matheson Lindsay Company, sold to the Province Elevator Company in 1928, and re-sold to United Grain Growers in 1932. It closed due to railway abandonment in July 1961, while still full of grain, but remaining standing at the site as recently as 1984.
