Historic Sites of Manitoba: Paterson Grain Elevator (First Street SW, Teulon)

A 28,400-bushel wooden grain elevator at Teulon was built in 1939 and operated by the Paterson Grain Company. In 1951, a 46,000-bushel wooden crib annex was built beside it and three steel tanks were added in 1960. Once served by the CPR Arborg Subdivision, the line has been closed and the rails have been removed. Grain is now trucked to a large terminal on the edge of Winnipeg or directly to market.
