Historic Sites of Manitoba: Young Grain Elevator / Paterson Grain Elevator (Mountainside, Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester)

A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Mountainside, on the CNR Wakopa Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, was built in the early 20th century for the Young Grain Company. It was sold to Paterson Grain in 1923 and operated until 1965 when it was closed and later demolished. A crib annex beside it was moved to Killarney where it became an annex for a Paterson elevator there.
