Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mineral Creek School No. 1108 / Ashville Community Centre (Ashville, Municipality of Gilbert Plains)

A building in the village of Ashville, in the Municipality of Gilbert Plains, was the former Mineral Creek School. In 1972, the building was purchased after the school had closed and moved to this site to become the Ashville Community Centre. A dance floor was added in 1974 and extensive renovations were carried out in 1978, including an annex to the curling rink, new washrooms, and an enlarged kitchen. The curling rink closed in February 1985 but the hall continued to host events until finally closing in November 2002. The building and land were sold and renovated into a private residence. A commemorate monument stands in front of the building.
