A wooden grain elevator at the siding of Wassewa, on the now-abandoned CNR Wakopa Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton, was operated by the Canadian Consolidated Grain Company from the 1920s until June 1959 when it was sold to United Grain Growers then re-sold to Paterson Grain in October 1959. It closed around 1965 and has since been removed from the site.
