A 40,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Marquette, on the CPR Carberry Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands, was built in 1941 by the Paterson Grain Company, joining an earlier 30,000-bushel elevator dating from 1920. The older elevator was closed in the early 1970s and sold in 1974. The newer elevator was renovated in the mid-1970s and its capacity was increased to 87,000 bushels, and eventually to 100,000 bushels. Closed in 2013, the elevator was demolished on 4 September 2013.
