A wooden grain elevator at Treherne, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne, was built in 1927 by United Grain Growers. An annex was added to it in 1959. Traded to Manitoba Pool in 1990, becoming its Pool B elevator, it was later closed and demolished in 2002.
