A wooden grain elevator at Treherne, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne, was built in 1928 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Renovations were made in 1954 and an annex was built beside it between 1976 and 1977. Closed in the late 1990s or early 2000s, it was demolished in 2003.
