Historic Sites of Manitoba: Leland Hotel / Oakland Hotel (130 North Railway Street, Oak Lake, RM of Sifton)

A hotel in Oak Lake in the Rural Municipality of Sifton was built in 1885 by a Mr. Cook. Originally known as the Leland Hotel, it was renamed the Oakland Hotel at some point. Its front facade was renovated extensively and, at the time of a 2011 site visit, the building was vacant. It was demolished soon afterward.
