A wooden grain elevator at Shortdale, on the CNR Togo Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Roblin, was built in 1933 by United Grain Growers. A temporary annex was constructed beside it in 1940 and used until 1962, while a permanent annex was added to the west side of the elevator in 1955. The facility was closed and demolished in November 1995.
