A wooden grain elevator at Ninette, on the CNR Hartney Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Prairie Lakes, was operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. The original elevator collapsed in late September 1967 and was replaced by one moved from nearby Hilton, acquired in trade from United Grain Growers. The elevator closed in 1988 and was demolished the following year.
