Creston’s iconic twin grain elevators are one of the most significant heritage sites in the Creston Valley. The grain elevators represent an agricultural industry that was significant part of Creston’s economy and are among the few remaining twin elevators in Canada. The twin grain elevators were purchased by the Columbia Basin Trust in June 2018 to protect these important heritage buildings.
The red elevator is an ex-Alberta Wheat Pool grain elevator, built in 1935. At the base of this elevator you will find an abundance of wonderful local artisan wares at the famous Kunze Gallery. The white elevator is an ex-UGG elevator, built in 1936. Just across the street from the Creston Valley Visitor Centre, the elevators are a must see when visiting.
