A wooden grain elevator at Tilston, on the CPR Alida Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Two Borders, was built around 1912 by the Lake of the Woods Milling Company, known for its Five Roses brand of flour whose name still appears on the sides of the building. In 1959, it was taken over by Manitoba Pool Elevators and became known as Pool Elevator B. Closed in 1976 due to a washed out bridge on the railway line, the elevator was sold for local grain storage.
