Special Places

The RM of Morris’s Special Places Project is one of more than 50 such initiatives being undertaken across Manitoba. Please visit the Heritage Manitoba website for more information on these kinds of projects, and also for information about the other communities involved in these pan-Manitoba initiatives.

Special Places projects, which have been developed by the Province’s Historic Resources Branch, and supported by grants from the branch’s Heritage Grants Program, are ensuring that many Manitoba communities have the solid historical and architectural information to ensure that followup projects focusing on a municipality’s built heritage are undertaken with confidence.

There are two parts to a Special Places Project, which have been followed in the development of the RM of Morris project:

Community Heritage Site Inventory

In 2011–12, consultant Lorne Thompson completed a comprehensive and detailed inventory of 102 local heritage sites in the RM of Morris.  This inventory ensures that historical and architectural information about each site is available for future work on the municipality’s architectural heritage. The inventory is also used in follow-up processes to identify those handful of sites the have major heritage significance to the RM of Morris.

Significant Heritage Sites

With the assistance of architectural historians at the province’s Historic Resources Branch, we have analyzed and assessed all 102 sites in our inventory, and have identified 15 places that have historical and architectural significance.
