Built in 1927 for United Grain Growers, a wooden grain elevator in Hilton, on the CNR Wawanesa Subdivision in what is now the Rural Municipality of Prairie Lakes, was closed in July 1966. The building was traded to Manitoba Pool Elevators around 1976 and moved to Ninette in October 1967, where it stood until demolition in 1989.
