Historic Sites of Manitoba: Telephone Repeater Station (Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa)

This small brick building along Manitoba Highway #2 near Wawanesa, in the Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa, is almost exactly 40 miles away from Telecommunications Building #2 and 80 miles from Telecommunications Building #3, in a nearly straight line. During the 1950s, it was used to house “J” Carrier Repeaters, a component of the Trans-Canada Telecommunications System. Constructed around 1952, the equipment inside the building was owned and operated by MTS.
