A wooden grain elevator at Broomhill, in the CPR Alida Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Two Borders, was built by Ogilvie Flour Mills then sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators around 1945 when its elevator was destroyed by fire. Closed in July 1971, the elevator was later removed from the site.
