The original Manitoba Pool grain elevator (the “B” elevator) was built in 1928 and renovated in 1985 to a capacity of 5,280 tonnes, apparently by adding bins. It was still present in 2000 but is no longer there.

The current elevator is the former “A” elevator with a capacity of 3,350 tonnes.

At one time there was a UGG grain elevator in Solsgirth as well.

Solsgirth is on the CP Bredenbury subdivision and has a railway siding.

Solsgirth has a pair of old churches, the Ukrainian Church of the Holy Spirit and the St. Stephen Anglican Church.
