A 160,000-bushel wooden grain elevator west of Deloraine, on the CPR Napinka Subdivision in the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators between 1973 and 1974. It opened officially on 18 December 1974. Operated by Agricore from 1998 to 2001 and by Agricore United from 2001 to 2002, it was closed in the latter year. The elevator is now used for private grain storage.
