Historic Sites of Manitoba: Pointe du Bois Stone House (Pointe du Bois, Whiteshell Provincial Park)

Built by Winnipeg Hydro in 1915 near the Pointe du Bois Hydroelectric Generating Station, it is believed the structure was made of hand-cut granite blocks by Italian stonemasons who had previously worked on the dam construction project. It was used until 1959 as a private residence for power utility workers and their families, after which it was a staff house. The building was demolished in late 2013.
