A wooden grain elevator at Carman, on the CPR Carman Subdivision, was built in 1928 by Manitoba Pool Elevators for a local cooperative. Destroyed by fire in August 1959, it was rebuilt the following year. A new annex was built beside it in 1963. The facility closed in 1983 and was later removed from the site.
