Historic Sites of Manitoba: Trans-Canada Garage (Whitemouth, RM of Whitemouth)

Until the mid-1950s, Highway 44 which runs through the Whitemouth, in the Rural Municipality of Whitemouth, served as the original Trans-Canada Highway. The Trans-Canada Garage is the last of four service stations that operated at Whitemouth during the 1950s that still appears much like it did at that time. Built in the early 1930s by John Buss, his son Norman took over the operation in 1960 and operated it until the business was closed in 1997.
