A wooden grain elevator in Manitou, on the CPR La Riviere Subdivision in the Municipality of Pembina, was built in 1961 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. A new annex was added in 1977 and extensive renovations were made between February and September 1988. The facility was reopened at a ceremony on 5 October 1988. Closed in 2001, the facility was sold to local interests and is still being used to storage grain and fill railcars for producers.
