Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ducharme Family Monument (Ste. Rita, RM of Reynolds)

A fieldstone monument at Ste. Rita, in the Rural Municipality of Reynolds, was erected to commemorate Antoine and Christene Ducharme who, along with their children (Olier Ducharme, Jean Baptiste Ducharme, Joe Ducharme, Rivoca Ducharme, Celeste Ducharme, and Maria Ducharme), arrived here to homestead on 9 May 1907. The plaque also indicates that the village’s original name was Craig, named for contractor Dick Craig who opened the first bush camp here, in 1907.
