Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scallion House and Granary (RM of Wallace-Woodworth)
These impressive fieldstone buildings, a two-storey residence and squat granary, are located on the southeast quarter of 3-11-26W in the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth, near the CPR Rocanville Subdivision. A stop on the railway was named Scallion for bachelor brothers James W. Scallion and Thomas B. Scallion (1851-1914), who homesteaded at 11-11-26W and, at the time of the 1911 census, were living at this location.
At the time of a visit in May 2013, the residence had significant structural damage, with its north wall all but gone. The granary appears in good general condition.
