Historic Sites of Manitoba: Keystone Pioneers Museum (Municipality of Roblin)

Located in the Municipality of Roblin, six kilometers east of Roblin, this community museum comprises a collection of antique machinery, log cabin, and sawmill. The former Makaroff United Church, built in 1910, was moved here after its deconsecration. A feature of the museum’s collection is the Elaschuk House, an intact Ukrainian khata (cottage) with a thatched roof, built in 1911. The house was designated as a National Historic Site by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada in 1975 but no commemorative plaque was erected because the Board determined that the building’s commemorative integrity was destroyed by being moved to the site. It is a provincially-designated historic site.
