A wooden grain elevator in Miami, on the CNR Miami Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Thompson, was built by the Miami Farmers Elevator Company in 1923. It was owned successively by the Canadian Consolidated Grain Company (1940-1959), United Grain Growers (1959-1970), Federal Grain (1970-1972), and Manitoba Pool Elevators (1972-1974). It was the Pool B elevator until being closed and removed around 1974.
