This impressive grouping of five standard-plan wooden grain elevators is a rare survivor of the long rows that once dominated Prairie towns. The row was built between 1922 and 1941, Manitoba's golden age of elevators, by a cross-section of grain-handling firms, including cooperatives and large companies backed by Canadian and American investors. Located in a town typical of many that dot the West, these slope-shouldered sentinels are surrounded by their outbuildings, rail line and fields of grain. They stand as powerful symbols of the Prairie landscape and lifestyle.

Les ?l?vateurs ? Grains D'Inglis
Cette impressionnante rang?e comprenant cinq ?l?vateurs ? grains en bois de mod?le standard demeure une rare survivant des longues files so fr?quentes autrefois dans les Prairies. Elle fut ?rig?e entre 1922 et 1941 durant l'?ge d'or de ces structures dont la construction ?tait asur?e par diverses enterprises d'int?r?ts canadiens et am?ricains, incluant des coop?ratives. Situ?es dans une ville semblable ? celles qui ponctuent l'Ouest du pays, ces sentinelles, flanqu?es d'annexes, de rails et de champs de c?r?ales, restent de puissants symboles du paysage et de la mani?re du style de vivre dans les Prairies.
