A wooden grain elevator at Cypress River, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Victoria, was built by the Paterson Grain Company in 1927, replacing an elevator built in 1898 by the Northern Elevator Company. Expanded with balloon annexes in 1940, 1953, and 1963, the annexes were replaced by four steel tanks in the 1980s.
