Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fournier General Store / Ponemah Beach Central Art Centre (Ponemah, Dunnottar)

This shed-roofed frame building with a low false front, at Ponemah in the Village of Dunnottar, was built around 1930 to replace an earlier building destroyed by fire. It served the area as a general store with living quarters at the rear. It also housed a post office and, for a time, the community’s only public telephone. Clad in wooden cove siding with corner boards and applied geometrical decoration on the front, the exterior has its original siding and details. It is now used by the Ponemah Beach Art Centre.
