Make Life Easy Controversy has surrounded Port Perrys historic grain elevator ever since it was purchased by the township in 2009 and opinions are almost split evenly for and against the aging structure. While many would like to see it demolished there seems to be growing sentiment that it should be saved. Now adding to that sentiment comes new evidence which may add credence to the theory that the Grain Elevator built along Port Perrys waterfront 141 years ago Port Perry could claim bragging rights to having thegranddaddy of all wood crib grain elevators OLDEST IN CANADA could be the oldest largest and most significant grain elevator of its era left in Canada. Lets look at some facts. Less than five years ago the town of Fleming Saskatchewan laid a claim that its 1895 grain elevator was Canadas Oldest Grain Elevator. Unfortunately in 1910 while restor- ing the elevator the historic structure burned to the ground. Not long after the destruction of the Fleming elevator the small town of Elva Manitoba stepped up to claim the title. The small grain elevator in Elva was estimated to have been constructed somewhere between 1892 and 1899. Curries grain elevator circa 1875. Gratti from 1975.Grafitti from 1875.
