Historic Sites of Manitoba: Private Grain Elevator (Woodland Hutterite Colony, RM of Woodlands)

A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at the Woodland Hutterite Colony in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands was built at Grosse Isle around 1912 by the Manitoba Grain Commission. It was later operated successively by United Grain Growers (two years), Smith Murphy and Company (two years), Arthur John Lobb (1918-1920), Wiley Low and Company (1920-1932), and Federal Grain. In July 1971, after the elevator had closed, it was moved to this site where it was still standing as of mid-2018.
