Historic Sites of Manitoba: Old Deloraine Bank Vault (Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester)

This field-stone bank vault, erected at the original site of Deloraine, in what is now the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, was abandoned when the Canadian Pacific Railway passed to the north of the town. Most buildings were relocated to the present town site but the vault could not be moved. It is now enclosed by a fence in the yard of the farmer who purchased the former town site in 1895. The vault, a municipally-designated heritage building (1993), is on private property so permission is required to view it.
