An 87,000-bushel grain elevator, annex, and steel bins in Dominion City, on the CPR Emerson Subdivision in the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1966. It was traded to United Grain Growers, whose nearby elevator had been demolished, in 1990. The facility closed on 31 January 1999 and was demolished.

During its period of operation, the local UGG board was active in the community, hosting an annual curling bonspiel, providing trophies for 4-H public speaking competitions, purchasing uniforms for local juvenile hockey teams, and making donations for the upkeep of the local rink.
