Prior to the Depression, Gravelbourg once had as many as nine grain elevators, attesting to the degree of prosperity in the community. Most were hit hard during the Depression and with the return of the bountiful years; new names appeared on the elevators: Federal Grain, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, Canada West, Pioneer Grain, and Canadian Consolidated. Today, however, only two remain - the Pioneer Grain Company elevator and the 1915 Western Elevator. The Gravelbourg & District Museum is in the process of restoring the 1915 elevator so that it can endure as symbol of the importance of agriculture in the region for years to come.
