Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bourrier Family Plaque (RM of Lorne)

This roadside plaque in the village of St. Lupicin, in the Rural Municipality of Lorne, commemorates settlers of this area who came here from Lozere, France. The family of settler Jean-Antoine Bourrier (1831-1917) left France in April 1891 and arrived here in mid-October 1891. Their home was used as a church for some years. The Bourrier, Chaleil, Portal, Soulodre, Chabidon, Brunel, and Bergeron families homesteaded in this vicinity.
