This building in Lyleton, in the Municipality of Two Borders, is unique in that its south side is made from poured concrete whereas the front (east) and north walls are made from locally-cast concrete blocks. Its year of construction is, as yet, unknown but is probably within the first decade of the 20th century, when the majority of Manitoba buildings made using this technique were built. The south wall has marked structural damage.
