A wooden grain elevator at the community of Wood Bay, on the CPR Napinka Subdivision in the Municipality of Louise, was built in 1927 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. It closed on 31 July 1971 and was used for private grain storage for a time. The elevator was finally demolished in July 1991 but its concrete foundation remained at the site as of early 2017.
