THE Inglis Area Her­itage Com­mit­tee is mark­ing its 20th an­niver­sary this year. Its man­date is to sus­tain, main­tain and en­hance the Na­tional His­toric Site of the only row of five re­stored wooden grain el­e­va­tors in the world.

Four of the five el­e­va­tors have been stand­ing since 1922, the year the rail­way ar­rived in the newly formed vil­lage of Inglis, which is lo­cated west of Rid­ing Moun­tain Na­tional Park.

It’s been 20 years since the el­e­va­tors have un­der­gone a ma­jor facelift, but it is hoped the big, white N.M. Pater­son el­e­va­tor on the north­ern end of the row will be painted this sum­mer. The com­mit­tee has launched a fundrais­ing cam­paign to help fi­nance the paint­ing of the four other el­e­va­tors in fu­ture years.

For more about the site and fund-rais­ing ef­forts, Go to:

or con­tact Judy Bauereiss, chair of Inglis Area Her­itage Com­mit­tee, at 204-564-2412.
