Manitoba Historical Society: Events: Settlers Rails & Trails Tour

DATE: Saturday, 13 May 2023, 12:00 PM
LOCATION: Meet at Sig's Grill, 332 Main Street, Stonewall, Manitoba R0C 2Z0

Meet up with a group of history buffs from the Manitoba Historical Society for lunch at Sig's Grill in Stonewall and purchase your lunch/beverage prior to our tour. We then will travel to the Settlers, Rails & Trails Museum at 13 MB-322, Argyle, MB R0C 0B0 for a guided tour beginning around 1:30 PM.

Our tour will take you on a journey of this 12-acre heritage park, and give the visitors a glimpse of a “museum under development“. As recent as 2019 this location was a farmer's field, but has since seen heritage building moves/renovations, native prairie grass restoration, heritage and royal trees planted, the building of a railway bed, access roads, landscaping efforts. This tour will include a visit to the recently-opened Queen Elizabeth Memorial Exhibit. The park is located on the Principal Meridian of Canada and includes a natural Karst “sinkhole” which can be toured as well. Our group meets in Argyle for lunch, and Argyle is only 30 minutes NW of Winnipeg.

*This is a BYOV event, which means bring your own vehicle!
