Historic Sites of Manitoba: Arden Post Office (Arden, Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne)

A distinctive one-storey building at Arden in the Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne was, at the time of a 2012 site visit, home to the local post office. It was constructed of locally-cast concrete blocks in the early 20th century, probably by the Arden Cement Block and Building Company established in 1904 by municipal official Maurice Boughton and others. By 2020, the post office had moved to the nearby municipal office and this building was standing empty.
