Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sargenia Terraces (Municipality of Roblin)

A pair of low stone terraces on an attractive south-facing hillside near Bield in what is now the Municipality of Roblin were constructed around 1918 by Italian immigrant Lorenzo Sargenia (c1858-1936). He used the terraces to grow grapes and other fruit and vegetable crops. Abandoned since at least the 1950s, the terraces are now heavily overgrown by trees and shrubs.
