A wooden grain elevator and annex at Dacotah, on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Cartier, was operated by the Paterson Grain Company. Part of it was built in 1957 while other part, constructed in 1917, was moved to the site from Cabot a few kilometres away in 1971. The entire facility was demolished in August 2003.
