Searle Grain Elevator, Charleswood, Manitoba

This grain elevator  was constructed by the Searle Grain Company. Merged with Federal Grain in 1966, the 285,000-bushel elevator, with its two annexes, was sold in 1972 to Manitoba Pool Elevators. It was demolished around 1978.

I hope to be able to scratch build this elevator and associated buildings from the many photos I took back in the day and add them to the the layout.

The above two photos were taken by Len Van Roon. A long time Charleswood resident.
If anyone reading this has more info or photos about the Searle grain elevator in Charleswood, I would love to hear from you. Either use the comment form at the bottom of this blog post or send me an email at Much appreciated.

I'll have to get my dates correct, but I believe it was around 1977 or 1978 that they demolished  the elevator. Sad times indeed.
