Historic Sites of Manitoba: Anderson Barn (RM of Elton)

This barn in the Rural Municipality of Elton, built in 1903 by William Anderson, who settled in the area in 1889, is a model of a typical barn in southern Ontario: a gable-roofed loft, a solid fieldstone foundation set into a hill (and thus providing easy access on the lower side into the stable and from the upper level into the hay loft), and cladding of the upper walls with vertical board and batten siding.
