A wooden grain elevator in Elgin, on the CNR Hartney Subdivision in the Municipality of Grassland, was one of two elevators operated by Paterson Grain. The larger of the two was moved here from Wakopa in 1966. Both were sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1981, the smaller elevator was demolished, and the remaining one was renovated extensively. A modern crib annex was also built beside it. Closed by Agricore United in 2001, it was sold into private ownership and continues in use for local grain storage.
