The elevator was closed January 2, 2003 by Parrish & Heimbecker a fate suffered by hundreds of similar grain elevators all over the prairies. However, this was one of the few that was not destroyed. Instead it was acquired by a newly formed organization Stettler P&H Elevator Preservation Society. It has been continually restored over the years and remains as a symbol of the grain industry.
