Two monuments stand at the former site of grain elevators in Cardale, on the CNR Rapid City Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Oakview. One monument, erected on 12 July 2009, commemorates the centennial year of the founding of Cardale, in 1909. The other was dedicated to local residents who organized and supported the Cardale Co-operative Elevator Association No. 95, that operated three grain elevators here from 1928 to 1978.
