Reimer Mennonite Log House

Designation Date: September 10, 2009
Designation Authority: Stanley (R.M.)
Present Owner: Stanley (R.M.)

The Reimer Mennonite Log House (1878) is valued as an example of a Mennonite housebarn (the barn portion does not survive) from the late pioneer period. These structures represent a very old European vernacular tradition, modified by Mennonite settlers to suit the conditions they found in Russia and later in Manitoba. These buildings made the most of the available materials to meet the needs of new settlers, and though utilitarian, have an elegance that stems from simplicity and good craftsmanship. Originally located in Hochfeld and lived in until 1980, the house retains much of its original exterior appearance, including the plan, massing and windows.
