Historic Sites of Manitoba: Badger General Store (Badger, RM of Piney)

At one time, the community of Badger in the Rural Municipality of Piney had three stores, post office, dance hall, schoolhouse, section house, and railway station. In 1926, this store, built in 1908 by John Fehr, was bought by Mrs. Jane Dee who operated it until she moved to Winnipeg in 1947. The store was sold to Edna and Wayne Aikenhead, then to the Turanskis in 1950. It is the only original building standing in Badger. It is in use as a private residence at the time of a 2019 site visit.
