This grain elevator, in Elva on the CPR Estevan Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Two Borders, is believed to be the oldest of its kind in Canada. It was constructed in 1897 by the Lake of the Woods Milling Company of Winnipeg. A new foundation and scale were installed around 1950, which has led some to suspect that the elevator was rebuilt at this time, but its characteristic squat style, quite different from those of other prairie elevators, supports a contention that it is original.
The elevator became part of the Ogilvie Milling Company when, in 1954, the two companies merged. For reasons unknown, the elevator retained the original company name painted on its side. It was purchased in 1959 by the Manitoba Pool Elevators, which closed the elevator in 1968 and sold it to private interests.
