A wooden grain elevator in Sperling, on the CNR Carman Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Morris, was built in 1928 by the Canadian Consolidated Grain Company. Sold in 1959 to United Grain Growers, the elevator was modernized and a large crib annex was built beside it, increasing the total capacity to 128,000 bushels. Further renovations were made in 1967.
The facility was demolished sometime between 1993 and 2006.
