A wooden grain elevator at Niverville, on the CPR Emerson Subdivision, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators between April and October 1981, replacing an earlier elevator destroyed by fire in November 1980. It was opened at a ceremony on 4 December 1981. Closed around 2002, it was sold to local interests and remains in use for private grain storage.
