June 18, 2022:   Pembina Cossing

The Boundary Commission Trail crossed the Pembina River in a broad valley south of present day Manitou.  Crossings were often likely spots to establish a Stopping Place and other services. As always, good crossings on the Boundary Trail were not necessarily chosen by the railway.

Before becoming St Lukes Anglican Church, this  log building was a general store, post office, and saloon, built in May 1880.  it was replaced by the present structure, a municipally-designated historic site as of 2011.
