Like so many other regions of Alberta, these grain elevators were once the reason for the existence of rural villages across the prairie region of the province. The elevators were the method used to load trains with grain heading for further processing. With the modern era, these elevators for the most part have become redundant and abandoned. Some towns have kept their roots and still utilize this system. In this photo, the last elevator is still currently in use, but the other two have since been decommissioned.
