Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lansdowne Municipal Office (Arden, Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne)

This impressive building in Arden, in the Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne, was built in 1904 of locally-cast concrete blocks, by the Arden Cement Block and Building Company established that year by municipal official Maurice Boughton and others. It has the distinction of being one of the few municipal offices in Manitoba that is still used for its original purpose.
