A wooden grain elevator at Oberon, on the CPR Varcoe Subdivision in the Municipality of North Cypress-Langford, was built by Ogilvie Flour Mills before 1912 and sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1959. Closed in July 1974 when a larger elevator opened at nearby Harte, the elevator now stands abandoned.
