Elevators in a Saskatchewan ghost town

Neidpath, Saskatchewan March 6, 2021.

I have been here before and posted it before. There once was a bit of a town here. There is still an abandoned church nearby. People come here to take photos of the elevators. That may soon be coming to an end. I had heard that they suffered wind damage and wanted to see them before someone decides it would be better if they were torn down. One had its top torn off, the other suffered roof damage. One of these days everything will disappear.


  1. I have tried to get there a couple of times. It looks like they will not be here much longer. Hope to get to that area this summer. Looking forward to more pictures of your latest trip.

  2. I am willing to bet that the wood used to build those old elevators is "old growth" wood with some beautiful tight rings. There is much salvage there to be had.

  3. This is news to me!!! Ahich wind storm was to blame for this? January 13 or the most recent one? A headless elevator really devalues this situation for photos. Damage to one DANKIN elevator two years back, then BENTS elevator is damaged, and then one elevator at BROMHEAD was felled for this reason...Both BENTS and NEIDPATH are (were) my top five photo-targetss in All the prairie region, more proof of the last days of prairie architectural heritage thus severing the connection to the past with losses of original site context elevators. I guess it is better to read about it then stumble upon destruction when out with a camera. []
