Little Known Historical Fact: Thunder Bay and Grain Trade

Thunder Bay has an interesting history intertwined with the grain trade. The city, formerly known as Fort William and Port Arthur, was the largest grain port in the world in the early 20th century. It was the last major port of the Great Lakes, and grain from the prairies was stored here before being loaded onto ships for transport to the Atlantic.

The massive grain elevators that lined the waterfront became an iconic symbol of the city. Even though Thunder Bay no longer holds the title of the world’s largest grain port, it remains a major player in the grain trade today, and the grain elevators continue to be a defining feature of the city’s skyline.
