A wooden grain elevator and annex at Dutton Siding, on the CNR Togo Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Gilbert Plains, was built and operated by Paterson Grain before being sold in 1925 to Manitoba Pool Elevators. In November 1971, it was traded to United Grain Growers which operated it until closure in December 1976. The facility was later demolished.
