Historic Sites of Manitoba: British America Grain Elevator / National Grain Elevator (Shevlin, Municipality of Roblin)

In 1923, a wooden grain elevator was built at Shevlin, on the CNR Togo Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Roblin, for the British America Elevator Company. Merged into National Grain in 1940, the elevator was closed in 1971 and later removed from the site. Some of its concrete foundations were still visible at the time of a 2019 site visit.
