A 40,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Cartwright, on the CPR Napinka Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Cartwright-Roblin, was built in 1948 by Federal Grain, replacing an earlier structure destroyed by fire. Closed in 1972, it was sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators, serving as its B elevator until it was closed and demolished in December 1984.
