Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mowbray Community Hall (Municipality of Pembina)

A community hall, which stood beside the one-room Mowbray School building in the Municipality of Pembina, had been broken into prior to a 2016 site visit and its interior was thoroughly damaged. A scenic painting on its deteriorating stage, dating from August 1956, was mostly intact.

The building was destroyed in 2022.
