Historic Sites of Manitoba: IOOF Hall / Odd Fellows Hall (Fourth Street, Wawanesa, Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa)

This two-storey brick building at Wawanesa, in the Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa, was built in 1901 as a hall for the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. In the early days, it was used for meetings of the municipal council, musical concerts, and other public events in addition to meetings of the organization. It was in use as a tea room at the time of a 2020 site visit.
