A wooden grain elevator at Brumlie, on the CNR Rapid City Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview, was built at Oak River by the Canadian Elevator Company. Moved to this site in 1909, the elevator was dismantled and rebuilt in the 1920s, before becoming an asset of the Canadian Consolidated Grain Company in 1928. It was sold to United Grain Growers in 1959, then re-sold to Manitoba Pool. Closed in 1970, the elevator was sold into private ownership, then demolished in 1984.
