Grain Elevators

NOTE: Due to extreme heat warnings, we are modifying our tours. The Historic Interpreters at St. Albert's Historic River Lots +Grain Elevators have set up crafts, activities and refreshing lemonade during this heat wave! While the River Lot houses and 1906 Silver Elevator are closed, our interpreters are happy to take you around the 1929 Alberta Wheat Pool Elevator and answer any questions you have (now is the time to pick their brains)! Then, help finish a puzzle, spend some time in our craft corner, learn Morse code, sort some seeds and leave with a cup of cold lemonade!

St. Albert is home to two “Sentinels of the Prairies” visible along Meadowview Drive at St. Albert’s Historic River Lots + Grain Elevators. Our Brackman-Ker Grain Elevator (built in 1906) and Alberta Wheat Pool Grain Elevator (built in 1929) have been beautifully restored and are provincially designated historic resources.

Visitors can meet an interpreter inside the replica Train Station. They can try their hand at Morse Code and other historic activities before touring the elevators and learning about St. Albert’s extensive rail and agricultural history.
