A wooden grain elevator at St. Ouens, on the CPR Lac du Bonnet Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead, was built in 1935 for the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society. It was sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1973, closed the following year, and sold to the Small family for use in their seed-cleaning business. It was destroyed by fire in July 1978.
