A grain elevator at Tenby, on the CNR Gladstone Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne, was built in 1952 by United Grain Growers. Closed in 1977, it was sold to a local farmer then re-sold to Cargill Grain in 1978, which operated it until 1999. Having a capacity of 67,000 bushels, with an associated wooden annex and several steel granaries, it was demolished in early 1999.
