Historic Sites of Manitoba: Moline Memorial Monuments (Moline, RM of Oakview)

This site in the Rural Municipality of Oakview was the location of the community of Moline. A monument here, erected in 1964, commemorates those from the area who were killed during military service during the First World War and the Second World War, pioneers who built a Methodist Church one mile north and one mile east of this site, and the Moline post office established in 1883. Nearby is a brick replica, built in 1990, of the two-storey brick structure of the Moline Co-op that operated here from March 1914 to 1981. Thought at the time to be the oldest Co-op in Manitoba, it was one of seven association that played a leading role in the formation of the Manitoba Co-operative Wholesale in Winnipeg in 1928. In 1958, it amalgamated with Co-ops at Cardale and Hamiota. Nearby is a monument commemorating Moline School No. 543.
