The town of Nanton, Alberta has three grain elevators – a twinned former Alberta Wheat Pool elevator, a former Pioneer elevator, and the Nanton Seed Cleaning plant.
The Pioneer elevator was built in 1929 for the Independent Grain Company Ltd. It became a Pioneer elevator when that company bought all 22 of Independent’s elevators in 1954. It was shut down in 2001.
These elevators now form the Canadian Grain Elevator Discovery Centre.
