Historic Sites of Manitoba: Gabel’s General Store (Ladywood, RM of Brokenhead)

This wooden building at Ladywood in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead was constructed between 1929 and 1931 for owners Henry Gabel (1899-1975) and Mary Sternat Gabel (1909-1990), who operated it as a general store until closure in 1975. Now a provincially-designated historic site, the building was later used as a community museum.
