I spotted this interesting Tourist Information building while driving across the prairies on the TransCanada Highway. Grenfell is a small town in Saskatchewan that cleverly made its TI look like a prairie grain elevator. As we’ve previously pointed out, the real counterparts of this structure are disappearing prairie icons. I enjoyed the row of smaller grain elevators behind the TI, which you can see better in the photos below.
As I’d pulled off the highway, I though I’d drive around the town to see what’s there. Nothing much, really. A nice historic mural on one of the buildings. A small museum featuring pioneer artifacts (open only during summer months). And it being the prairies, no town would be complete without a modern grain elevator made of concrete.
