A 50,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Oak River, on the CPR Miniota Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Riverdale, was built in 1958 by the Canadian Consolidated Grain Company. Sold the following year to United Grain Growers, it operated until 30 December 1980 when the railway line was abandoned. Sold to the Deerboine Hutterite Colony for local grain storage, it ceased being used around 2004 and was demolished in November 2008.
