A wooden grain elevator in Grandview, on the CNR Togo Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Grandview, was built in 1950 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Renovated in 1990, the elevator closed in August 2004 and was sold to Richardson Pioneer in 2008. In late November 2009, the last-remaining elevator in Grandview was demolished.
