Historic Sites of Manitoba: Price Concrete Barn (Municipality of North Norfolk)

This distinctive barn in the Municipality of North Norfolk was built in the early 20th century using locally-cast concrete blocks, probably made by local builder Frank Thomson. The site was homesteaded as of 1892 by Richard Price and the building was owned by the Price family until the 1990s when it was sold.
