Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rivercrest (RM of West St. Paul)

In 1946, the subdivision of Rivercrest was created under the Veterans Land Act in the Rural Municipality of West St. Paul. It was originally settled by 56 veterans of the Second World War and their families. A monument at this site was unveiled on 6 October 1996 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the subdivision.
