Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lansdowne Municipal Office (Arden, RM of Lansdowne)

This impressive building in the village of Arden, in the Rural Municipality of Lansdowne, was built in 1904 of locally-cast concrete blocks, by the Arden Cement Block and Building Company established that year by municipal official Maurice Boughton and others. It has the distinction of being one of the few municipal offices in Manitoba that is still used for its original purpose.
