Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B (First Street SW, Teulon)
A wooden elevator at Teulon on the CPR Arborg Subdivision was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1952, joining a second elevator dating from 1920 and purchased from Western Canada Flour Mills in 1940. The older elevator was designated A and the newer one was B. Pool A was closed in 1971 and put up for sale, while Pool B was expanded with a 120,000-bushel crib annex in 1969, renovated fully in 1979, and closed in October 2000. It was demolished by Agricore United in January 2003 after a company offer to sell the facility to the town for $1 was refused.
