Historic Sites of Manitoba: Whitemouth Brickyard (Whitemouth, RM of Whitemouth)

This site at Whitemouth, in the Rural Municipality of Whitemouth, was occupied by a brickyard operated by Albert N. McCutcheon and John “Jack” Wardrop. The partnership was dissolved in 1916 and McCutcheon carried on alone. Two years later, McCutcheon took Wardrop to court, accusing his former partner of attempting to saboutage the business. In 1923, McCutcheon sold the brickyward to David Malcolm Wardrop who, in 1945, sold it to Alsips Brick. Today only a few brick fragments mark the location of the facility.
