Historic Sites of Manitoba: Union Grain Elevator / Federal Grain Elevator (Norgate, Municipality of McCreary)

Built around 1918 by the Union Grain Company, a 25,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Norgate, on the CNR Neepawa Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of McCreary, became part of Federal Grain when the companies merged in 1929. The facility was closed in 1964 and was later removed from the site.
