Reports from community members in Winnipegosis say demolition work has begun on the Winnipegosis grain elevator.

Photos shared on social media on Thursday morning show crews and heavy equipment on the site.

President of the Manitoba Historical Society Dr. Gordon Goldsborough told CKDM late last year there are about 130 grain elevators left in the province, down from over 700 that used to be standing in Manitoba.

The Winnipegosis grain elevator is privately owned, and municipal staff were unable to confirm any details about the demolition.
