Four of the five Inglis Grain Elevators have been standing since 1922, the year the railway arrived at the newly created village of Inglis, Manitoba.
Rows of elevators were once a prominant feature in many larger communities across the Prairies. Now most of the elevators are gone and the only known row left standing is at Inglis.
The elevators have endured thanks to the determination and dedication of the people in the Inglis area, who recognized early on that the elevators are an enduring symbol of the Prairies, agriculture and a way of life.
