Rivers is a community within the Riverdale Municipality, northwest of Brandon, Manitoba. As the photograph above dated to 1930 suggests, Rivers once had several grain elevators marking its landscape. Today, only one remains and is visible from the Via Rail train bound westward from Toronto.
The enduring elevator was built by United Grain Growers in 1957. The ownership of the elevator changed several times over the years and is currently privately owned.
