First World War | Second World War | Other | Sources

The Binscarth Cenotaph in Binscarth, in the Municipality of Russell-Binscarth, was dedicated at a ceremony on 2 June 1919 in memory of First World War veterans. Made of red granite with a soldier on top made of white Italian marble, public donations paid its $1,625 cost. A metal ornamental fence was made by local blacksmith and veteran Donald Mann. Surrounding spruce trees were donated by Tom Clements and the land was donated by Frank McPherson.
