A grain elevator on South Railway Avenue in Crystal City, on the CPR Napinka Subdivision in the Municipality of Louise, was built in 1928 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Renovated in 1965, 1976, and 1986, a crib annex was built beside the elevator in 1968. The facility was closed in October 2000 and sold to Paterson Grain in 2004.

Close by Paterson Grain in late 2021, the elevator was demolished in July 2022.
