A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Pipestone, on the CPR Arcola Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was built in 1927 by United Grain Growers, replacing an earlier elevator dating from 1897. A 30,000-bushel balloon annex was constructed on its east side in 1952. Renovated between 1967 and 1968, the elevator was closed in October 1991 and demolished in March 1992.
