Historic Sites of Manitoba: McLean Brickyard (RM of Pembina)

This location in the Rural Municipality of Pembina is believed to be the former location of a brickyard established around 1900 by local farmer and carpenter Murdock McLean. Bricks from the facility were used to construct several homes in the area, including McLean’s own home (about N49.33333, W98.65589, now gone) as well as the Shewfelt House and DeVloo House at Kingsley, Deamel House at Archibald (about N49.31175, W98.65964), and Currie House at La Riviere. Yellow-coloured bricks are scattered around an agricultural field at the site.
