Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rockwood Registry Office (283 Second Avenue North, Stonewall)

The Rockwood Registry Office, constructed in Stonewall in 1882, was the first municipal building in the Rural Municipality of Rockwood. From 1914 to 1939, it was a passenger station for a trolley line into Winnipeg operated by the Winnipeg, Selkirk and Lake Winnipeg Railway Company. Now a private residence, it became a municipally-designated historic site in 2012.
