Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Hamilton Bank Vault (Bradwardine, RM of Daly)

Founded about 1902 in the Rural Municipality of Daly, by the arrival in the area of Great North West Central Railway (later purchased by the Canadian Pacific Railway), the village of Bradwardine once had a bank, livery stables, hotel, lumber yard, implement dealer, blacksmith, grocery, and other stores. Two fires in the early 1900s, and removal of the railway and school after the Second World War years, led to its rapid decline. Today, all that remains at the site is a concrete bank vault, grain elevator, two or three occupied homes, and several derelict residences. A few additional buildings were moved to the nearby English Museum.
