Paterson Grain was founded in 1908, and built it's first elevator in Fort William, (now Thunder Bay) Ontario.
In Alberta, there are only two Paterson elevators.
This elevator was built in 1924 by N.M. Paterson and Sons. The elevator was rebuilt in 1955, and had new equipment installed in 1996. The elevator is still in operation, but only as a satellite storage facility, even though the rail tracks through Hilda were torn out in 2005.
Located about 1 miles east of Dunmore in SE Alberta. This facility was built in 1998, and is in use today.
