Rossburn was the namesake town of the CN Rossburn subdivision.

In 1912 there was a Canadian Elevator Company grain elevator (25,000 bushel capacity) and a Northern Elevator Company elevator (30,000 bushels) in Rossburn.

By 1917 a British American elevator had been built.

In 1944 there were three elevators:

  • Manitoba Pool Elevators
  • National Grain Company
  • Canadian Consolidated Grain Company

The Canadian Consolidated elevator was moved and became an annex for the National elevator in the early 1950s. This “combined” elevator was eventually owned by Cargill.
