A 40,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Glenora, on the CNR Wakopa Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Argyle, was built in 1927 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. A new balloon annex was constructed next to it in 1952, increasing its total capacity to 85,000 bushels. The elevator was closed in December 1978 and sold into private ownership. It was destroyed by fire on 14 December 1980, along with 23,000 bushels of grain.
