Historic Sites of Manitoba: Red River Grain Elevator / Ogilvie Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator (Mollard, RM of Macdonald)

A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Mollard, on the CNR Carman Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald, was built around 1938 by the Red River Grain Company. Transferred to the parent company Canada West Grain around 1946, it was re-sold to Ogilvie Mills in 1952 and to Manitoba Pool in 1959. Used only for grain storage between 1965 and 1970, it was closed in August 1970 and later removed from the site.
