Are you really a tourist if you don't visit a grain elevator in Alberta? This Grain Elevator is filled with rich history and is kept very clean.

I have driven by it lots. It looks nice and is apart of the town. I would be sad to see it go as it holds a variety of historic meaning and facts about Alberta.

We're open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Come for a tour before the snow flies as the elevator proper isn't heated (everything else is).

As someone visiting Alberta from the UK, I have always found the surviving old wooden Grain Elevators to be part of Canadian History. The fact that at one time there were well over 5,000 of them in Alberta and now there are less than 500 shows how these Prairie Sentinels have largely vanished from the landscape. To be able to visit one that is well preserved and looked after was a pleasure and an interesting insight into how things were not that long ago and a reminder of how important it is to preserve the heritage for future generations to see and enjoy. As there is an obvious expense in keeping this Elevator in good condition, I think its only reasonable to make a small donation towards its upkeep. Its well worth visiting!

We hope you have been back. The South Warehouse is now our Interpretive Centre and we're in the process of putting the elevator office back to how it would have looked originally.

One of the few remaining wooden grain elevators left in pristine condition. A dedicated group of enthusiasts put in many long hours to keep this amazing piece of history alive. Still in it's original site along the Canadian Pacific line through the City of Leduc Alberta. Located just off the QE2 highway south 15 minutes from Edmonton and near the Edmonton International Airport. This historical site is a center point for many of the summer activities of this vibrant community. This is a small site and is easily walked and viewed. You can see why they used to call these structures the "Prairie Skyscraper". Contact them through their website and get a personal historic lesson of the way it once was. There are great places to eat and stay while in Leduc.
