Historic Sites of Manitoba: Pembina Threshermen’s Museum (RM of Stanley)

Established in 1968, in the Rural Municipality of Stanley midway between Morden and Winkler, the museum arose from an old-time threshing bee held two years earlier on the farm of local resident, William V. Elias. Its mandate was to preserve the agricultural and Mennonite heritage of the Pembina Valley region. Situated on 12 acres of land, the museum comprises several heritage buildings, including Morden’s Canadian Pacific Railway Station, Haskett’s grain elevator (moved to the museum in February 2015), Braun House, Reimer Log House (formerly at Hochfeld, moved to the museum in 1980), Pomeroy School No. 58 (Newton School No. 58), Roseisle United Church, and others. The museum is open from May to September, seven days a week.
