A warehouse to store grain was built by Mr.

Dave McNaughton in 1902. This building is still being used by Bill Jones as a storage shed in connection with his business. At the time it was built, all grain was bagged, and hoisted into the loft by block and tackle. The block is still in the building and also a hardwood chute, which was used when grain was being loaded out. On the outside of the building are four large iron rings, where teams were tied when grain was being unloaded. After 80 years, the building is in remarkably good shape.
