A wooden grain elevator and crib annex in Oakner, on the CNR Rivers Subdivision in the Municipality of Hamiota, was constructed between 1978 and 1979. They replaced an earlier elevator once owned by the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society but purchased in 1973 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. A second annex was added on the west side in 1985. The buildings were demolished in 2010 or 2011.
