Historic Sites of Manitoba: Canadian Consolidated Grain Elevator / Paterson Grain Elevator (Wassewa, Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)
A wooden grain elevator at the siding of Wassewa, on the now-abandoned CNR Wakopa Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton, was operated by the Canadian Consolidated Grain Company from the 1920s until around 1958 when it was sold to Paterson Grain. It closed around 1965 and has since been removed from the site.
