A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Fairfax, on the CNR Hartney Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Grassland, was built in 1920 by Paterson Grain. In the 1950s, balloon annexes were built on two sides of the elevator then they were replaced by a large crib annex and two steel tanks. The facility was closed in 1999 and demolished in 2000.
