A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Gregg, on the CNR Cabot Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of North Cypress-Langford, was built in 1931 by the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society. A crib annex on its east side dates from 1955 and two steel tanks were added in 1991. Sold in 1973 to Manitoba Pool Elevators, its closure on 31 October 2000 coincided with the merger of Agricore and United Grain Growers, although the Pool logo remains on its west side. It is used for private grain storage.
