A composite-style grain elevator (consisting of an elevator and attached crib annex) at Reston, on the CPR Arcola Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was built between 1976 and 1977 by Manitoba Pool Elevators, replacing a smaller elevator that stood on the opposite side of the railway tracks, beside a UGG elevator. Closed in 2001, the elevator was later sold for private grain storage.
