The elevator was decommissioned in 1999-2000 and was slated for demolition, but it was saved by a local heritage group and today is open for tours.

The Prairie Dog Central Railway owns the track through Warren and occasionally visits during the summer, bringing many tourists. In the past few years the Prairie Dog has been storing cars on the line and has not ventured to Warren very often.

The site around the elevator has been upgraded with a boardwalk and numerous outbuildings for concerts, farmers’ markets and other activities. The office of the elevator has been refurbished as well.
