Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hamm House (Neubergthal, Municipality of Rhineland)

The 1½-storey Hamm House, in Neubergthal in the Municipality of Rhineland, was built around 1880 for Johann and Anna Hamm. Originally part of a combined home/barn unit, the upper walls of the timber frame structure were filled with sun-dried mud bricks. In 1906, the house was moved to the back of the site and used as a granary. It was later moved to the present site and renovated as a picnic shelter. Some restoration of the building was done as part of the Manitoba Prairie Icons Project and it became a municipally-designated heritage building in 2004.
