Gregg, Manitoba

Barn and grain elevator, Gregg, 2018
I've visited Gregg, Manitoba a couple of times over the years. On my first trip in May 2014, I was rushing through, photographing as many grain elevators as I could, so I didn't spend a lot of time there. Recently I revisited Gregg and had a little more time to wander and discover other sights in the area.

Kerfoot Methodist Church, 2018
The Kerfoot Methodist Church was built in 1895. When the Methodist Church of Canada and others merged to become the United Church of Canada in 1925, this became the Kerfoot United Church.

I am not sure if it is still in use, but when I visited in March 2018, the snow around it was undisturbed... on a Sunday.

There is a fairly large graveyard behind the church. I did not go in the fenced area but there is a photo of the interior on the Manitoba Historical Society page.

Gregg school, 2018
The Gregg school is the second school built in the area. This building was constructed in 1955 and closed in 1966. Students go to Carberry now. The building is on private land and I photographed it from the road.

Of course, the main attraction from my point of view is the Gregg grain elevator.

This elevator was closed in 2000 and is now privately owned by Mid-Man Farms, who also own the nearby Harte elevator.

  1. Sadly, when churches unite, sound doctrine usually suffers.

    1. I don't know, the United Church is the most progressive mainstream church in Canada. I like that.

  2. I'd never heard of churches merging before...
