Historic Sites of Manitoba: Reeves Barn / Sibbald Barn (Municipality of Riverdale)

This building in the Municipality of Riverdale was built of local fieldstones in the late 19th century for Ernest Reeves, a wealthy Englishman. Around 1910, it was taken over by the family of Thomas W. Sibbald. In 1990, it became a municipally-designated heritage building. As of early 2013, the structure was largely collapsed.
