Historic Sites of Manitoba: Union Bank Building / Hamiota and District Archive (39 Maple Avenue East, Hamiota, Municipality of Hamiota)

The Hamiota and District Archive is a non-profit organization located in the Heritage Arts Centre in the Town of Hamiota. Established in February 1986, its purpose is to collect and preserve materials relevant to the Hamiota area. The group also compiled the two-volume local history book Hamiota: Grains of the Century. It is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

The building in which the Archive is housed was built in 1898, as a branch of the Union Bank of Canada. It was absorbed by the Royal Bank in 1925, which operated the facility until 1977. The structure was originally three storeys tall but the uppermost storey was destroyed by fire in 1928. The second storey was then converted into an apartment for the bank manager. The building is a municipally designated historic site.
