Historic Sites of Manitoba: Oak River Memorial Hall (Oak River, RM of Oakview)

This one-storey building at Oak River, in the Rural Municipality of Oakview, was built in 1932, at a cost of $908, as a project of the Oak River Women’s Institute in commemoration of local First World War veterans. It was maintained by the Women’s Institute until 1982 when it was taken over by a group of community organizations that use the building for their meetings. In 2002, the interior was repaired and painted and the window coverings were replaced.
