Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brooks House Monument (Municipality of Roblin)

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, this site in the Municipality of Roblin bordered the historic Pelly Trail. A home built circa 1881 by Robert and Jane Brooks served as a roadhouse, welcoming people travelling between Fort Pelly, Fort Saskatchewan, and Fort Ellice. Demolished in early 2008, a commemorative monument for the old house was unveiled in June 2008.
