A wooden grain elevator at Arborg, on the CPR Arborg Subdivision, was built in 1923 by the Liberty Grain Company. Merged into the Searle Grain Company in 1929, it merged into Federal Grain in 1966. Acquired by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1972, the house became its Pool C elevator. Closed in 1982, the elevator was removed from the site.
