Historic Sites of Manitoba: Beautiful Plains County Court House (282 Hamilton Street, Neepawa)

Built in 1884 by Gossil and Dykeman on a design by Winnipeg architect C. O. Wickenden, this structure in the Town of Neepawa was used for the county court, jail, municipal offices and a theatre. A commemorative plaque on the grounds was erected by the Historic Sites Advisory Board of Manitoba and the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada (1980). This is a provincially-designated historic site. A monument on the front lawn commemorates local war veterans.
