CWGG Grand Coulee
This information comes from a 1970s Central Washington Grain Growers brochure, showing off their grain facilities.
Our Grand Coulee station sits in the shadow of this nation’s largest hydroelectric power dam. Passers by see more power lines than anything else. But high on the surroundings hills and plateaus are fields of waving grain reaching out in all directions—toward Almira, Hartline, Coulee City, Del Rio and across the Columbia River.
Grand Coulee is the cooperative’s only truck station. The closest rail head is Coulee City. All grain handled here is hauled out by trucks to the coast and river terminals.
The newly painted steel grain bins can be seen shining brightly from every approach.
