A wooden grain elevator in the village of Lowe Farm, on the CNR Miami Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Morris, was once operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Its corporate signage has been removed along with the adjacent railway line and the building was for sale at the time of a 2016 site visit.
