Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ogilvie Grain Elevator / Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator B (North Railway Avenue, Winkler)

A wooden grain elevator at Winkler, on the CPR La Riviere Subdivision, was built around 1901 by Ogilvie Flour Mills, with a balloon annex constructed beside it in 1940. Sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1959, it became Pool B. Closed in 1976, it was later demolished.
