Fannystelle, Manitoba has two grain elevators. One is a modern Viterra concrete grain terminal but the other Fannystelle grain elevator is a lovely old Stevens & Company elevator.
The Stevens & Company elevator says “LUMBER, COAL AND GRAIN” on it, as many elevators also sold other commodities such as coal, grain, fertilizer and other farming needs. The Stevens Lumber Company is still operating in Fannystelle.
The United Grain Growers (UGG) built a high throughput elevator in Fannystelle, which became part of Agricore United when UGG merged with Agricore. It is now Viterra.
The Viterra elevator has a capacity of 9,550 tonnes and is served by the CP Glenboro subdivision.
There were at least two Manitoba Pool grain elevators in Fannystelle in the mid 1980s but none remain now.
Fannystelle also has a lovely church, the Sacré-Coeur de Jésus Roman Catholic Church, built in late 1912 and recently restored.
