A wooden grain elevator at the Amaranth, on the CNR Oakland Subdivision in Rural Municipality of Alonsa, was built by Federal Grain in 1946. Its initial 30,000-bushel capacity was increased with balloon annexes on each side of the elevator. Sold to Manitoba Pool in 1972, the facility was closed in August 1984 and later removed from the site.
