Built in 1957, the grain elevator was constructed in the “Post and Beam” method, entirely of wood. It measures 70-feet high (23 meters) and has a full concrete basement. This elevator is believed to be the only Prairie-style elevator east of Manitoba. The warehouse portion was built in the mid 1950s and was used for the rental portion of the operation. All together it was locally known as the “Feed Mill”. You could purchase everything for your farm from feeds & seeds to hardware and rubber boots. Even live chicks could be purchased from the feed mill.
