Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ukrainian People’s Home of Ivan Franko (Angusville, RM of Riding Mountain West)

This social hall at Angusville in the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West, a municipally-designated historic site as of 1992, was built in 1934 by members of the Ukrainian National Home Society. It is rare in featuring three “banyas” or onion domes as part of its design. It also has a hand-painted curtain, unique stage and viewing balcony, bronze sculpture of Taras Shevchenko, the original hall charter, and a painting of King George V and Queen Mary. Restoration of the building was done as part of the Manitoba Prairie Icons Project.
