A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Riding Mountain, on the CNR Neepawa Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Rosedale, was constructed in 1912 by the Grain Growers' Grain Company, predecessor to United Grain Growers. Destroyed by fire on 31 October 1936, it was rebuilt and a 25,000-bushel balloon annex was constructed beside it in 1951. The elevator closed on 31 July 1972 and was demolished.
