The town of Holland, Manitoba hosts a Paterson grain elevator. This elevator has a capacity of 3,240 tonnes and is owned by the N.M. Paterson grain company.
There were a number of different grain elevators in Holland over the years:
- Ogilvie (built 1895, burned 1948)
- International Elevator / Federal Grain
- Lake of the Woods
- Holland Farmers (destroyed by fire, 1913)
- Victoria McCabe
- N.M. Paterson
- Manitoba Pool (built 1927, demolished November 2003)
Holland was on the CP Glenboro subdivision. CP abandoned the middle of that subdivision around 2015 and Holland no longer has rail service.
The town of Holland is notable for having a windmill – non-functional – and has a mural honouring Tammy Mahon, who was on Canada’s national women’s volleyball team from 2001 to 2012.
This barn/elevator is on a farm nearby.
