A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator in Hargrave, on the CPR Broadview Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth, was built by United Grain Elevators in 1926. A crib annex built beside it in 1953 increased its storage capacity to 60,000 bushels. The facility was later closed and removed from the site.
