Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at Sandy Lake, on the CNR Rossburn Subdivision in the Municipality of Harrison Park, was built in 1953 by Manitoba Pool Elevators and an attached crib annex dates from 1967. Extensively renovated in 1986, the facility was closed in April 1996, due to abandonment of its railway line, and sold into private hands. It continues in use for local grain storage.
