Elva Elevator Project

The challenging process of reclaiming valuable antique wood, tin, and hardware has begun.

 

We are reclaiming 2 antique grain elevators

  1. Lake of the Wood Co. (oldest in Western Canada, 1897)

  2. United Grain Growers (1920’s)

 

Our goal is to salvage as much valuable material as possible for re-use purposes as a staple for DIY minded projects and woodworking.  This is an amazing opportunity to share and preserve this incredible piece of Canadian Prairie heritage.
