A wooden grain elevator at Cromer, on the CNR Cromer Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was in 1926 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. In late 1981, an elevator from Woodnorth was moved beside it and the old elevator was converted into an annex before being removed in the 1990s. The elevator was demolished in 2002.
