A 25,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Dauphin, on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision, was built in 1918 for the Liberty Grain Company and opened early the following year. It was taken over by Searle Grain in 1929, merged with Federal Grain in 1966, by which time its capacity was 65,000 bushels. The elevator is no longer present at the site.
