We are very proud to have three
municipally designated heritage sites. These buildings
are very special because
in some cases they are all that is left to remind us of the once
thriving communities that were located throughout our municipality.
Church was built in 1906, and is
the oldest church in the R. M. that is still
active. Church services are held every
year through July and August, with
United Church Reverend David
officiating. It also
hosts an annual
Christmas concert. It is maintained
entirely by volunteers from the
the road from the
church is the Tummel Deer Park
Cemetery, which dates back
the turn of the century. Donations for
the upkeep of the church and/or the cemetery would be appreciated by the community.
If you are interested in giving please contact Gladys at 204-937-4955.
only original school building still
standing and in use in the R. M. is the
Cromarty Hall. Through the years many
community events have been held
in it such
as Christmas concerts
wedding receptions, dances,
community suppers, etc.
building style is typical of an early
1900's school, very few which have
survived through the years. In
the past few years the community has
made several improvements to the
such as re-shingling and painting. If you
would like to volunteer your time or
make a donation please call Marie at 204-937-4738.
many community events
The Makaroff Hall was built in 1922. It is the only community building still
once a thriving village.
building plans were drawn by a local
resident and the hall was built
volunteers from the community. It is still
used for wedding socials, reunions,
meetings, funeral luncheons, etc. As
well, it still
fall suppers and dances.
In 2006, the Makaroff Community Club
made improvements to the roof and the
kitchen, and in the summer of 2007
some painting and exterior renovations
were done. If you are
helping them out financially or would like
to help at one of the
work bees, please call
Arlene at 204-937-4742.
