A 40,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Hazelridge, on the CPR Keewatin Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Springfield, was built in 1951 by Ogilvie Flour Mills, replacing a 25,000-bushel elevator from 1911. Expanded to 85,000 bushels with a crib annex added in 1954, the facility was sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1959. Renovated in 1976, the elevator was closed in December 1988 and later demolished.
