A pair of grain elevators in downtown Creston, BC, Canada, have new owners, the Columbia Basin Trust (CBT).

The Creston Valley Advance reports CBT is committed to helping preserve the region’s history and share it with future generations.

The six-story structures were built in 1935 and 1936, and were used to collect, store and ship locally grown wheat, barley, oats and rye. Since their closure in 1971 and 1982, they have seen little use or major upkeep since.
