A 50,000-bushel wooden grain elevator on Mill Road in Boissevain, on the CPR Boissevain Subdivision in the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton was built around 1941 by McCabe Grain. Sold to United Grain Growers in 1968, a new crib annex was built on its north side in 1975. Closed in 2000, the elevator was sold for private grain storage the following year.
