Historic Sites of Manitoba: Federal Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator / United Grain Growers Grain Elevator (Swan Lake, Municipality of Lorne)

Built in 1954, a 111,500-bushel wooden grain elevator and its two annexes at Swan Lake, on the CNR Carman Subdivision in the Municipality of Lorne, were bought from Federal Grain in 1960 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. In 1971, they were traded to United Grain Growers.
