Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Eastern Railway Bridge (Whitemouth River, RM of Whitemouth)

The four concrete piers of a bridge over the Whitemouth River in the Rural Municipality of Whitemouth are one of the few surviving remnants of the Manitoba Eastern Railway. Built in 1928 to deliver construction supplies for the Seven Sisters Generating Station, the 13-mile railway line from Whitemouth to Seven Sisters Falls was dismantled in the mid-1950s.
