Historic Sites of Manitoba: National Grain Elevator (Winnipegosis, RM of Mossey River)

A wooden grain elevator at Winnipegosis, in what is now the Rural Municipality of Mossey River on the former CNR Winnipegosis Subdivision, was built in 1950 by National Grain. Around 1956, its initial 55,000-bushel capacity was increased to 85,000 bushels by the construction of a balloon annex on its southern side. Sold to Cargill Grain in 1975, it was closed in April 1981. The building now appears to be abandoned.
