Historic Sites of Manitoba: Paterson Grain Elevator (Horton, Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Horton, on the CNR Wakopa Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton, was built in 1927 by the Paterson Grain Company. Its capacity was expanded in 1951 and 1955 before the railway line was abandoned in August 1961. The elevator continued to operate until closure in 1965. Sold the following year, the elevator was later demolished. Only its concrete approaches were still present at the time of a mid-2019 site visit.
