Wood Mountain Elevator

Wood Mountain is a Village located in south central Saskatchewan a few kilometers from where the original North West Mounted Police post was originally located. For several years in the 1870's , the N.W.M.P. monitored Sitting Bull and thousands of Sioux who feld to this area after the battle of Little Big Horn.

There is only one grain elevator left in Wood Mountain, and it is not in operation. This elevator was built by the Saskatchewan Pool in 1928. Its one of Saskatchewan's oldest wooden elevators standing today.
