The Edwin grain elevator stands in the center of what used to be the town. There are several homes around, as well as a Canada Post mailbox, and a nearby community centre and TransCanada Pipeline facility show the community is still alive.

The Edwin grain elevator and bins

The elevator itself appears to be derelict. The nearby bins and augers indicate that they are used instead of the elevator.

Interior of the Edwin grain elevator

The doors to the interior are wide open and the general disarray also indicates that it is no longer in use.

The office, loading dock, ramp, and roof were apparently removed sometime after 2006. Previous photos show that it was in bad shape.

This elevator became the Manitoba Pool “B” elevator in Snowflake.

Snowflake’s two elevators

The heritage of the former Federal elevator is obvious now. The elevator used to say “Federal Grain Limited – Agricultural Chemicals and Fertilizers – Snowflake”.
