Historic Sites of Manitoba: Elie Roman Catholic Convent (Elie, RM of Cartier)

A two-storey brick building in Elie, in the Rural Municipality of Cartier, formerly housed a Roman Catholic Convent built in 1915 for the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions. It closed between 1984 and 1985, and is now used as a Bed and Breakfast. The cross on the building’s roof was dismantled before it fell off but the owners intend to restore and replace it.
