A wooden grain elevator at Pipestone, on the CPR Arcola Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was built in 1929 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. A balloon annex was constructed on its west side in 1963 and the elevator was fully renovated in 1970. Traded to United Grain Growers in April 1979, becoming its second elevator here, the facility was closed in October 1991 and demolished in March 1992.
