A 30,000-bushel wooden grain elevator, at the railway siding of Dipple (named for local settlers John and Elizabeth Dipple) on the CNR Carman Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald, was built in 1922 for the Paterson Grain Company. Closed in 1948, the elevator was demolished the following year and its materials were used to build an annex at Fannystelle.
