Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ukrainian National Home (Tolstoi, Municipality of Emerson-Franklin)

The original Ukrainian National Home in Tolstoi, in what is now the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin, was built in 1914 and was used by the community for celebrations and cultural events. It was replaced in 1936 and a dining area was added in 1963. In the past, it operated as a library. Plays were often performed by residents and the local school Christmas concert was held here. The hall has been modernized through the years.
