Current Projects

During the summer of 2012 we are working on furthering the following projects:

Working Map
  • Interactive Map - Take a virtual tour of southwest Manitoba, exploring its history like never before. YOU decide what the map displays. Choose from the available Themes and Categories or use the Time Slider feature to find out what the landscape looked like at any given time in history. More

  • Layered Map - We have been working on the creation of a layered map since the very beginning. This is essentially a "hard copy" of the Interactive Map feature of the website. We find this map helpful as a part of our travelling display. More

  • Geocaches - In 2011 we extended our historic geocache tour of southwest Manitoba to include the RM of Edward in the Pierson area. More

  • Bus Tours - We have offered one-day regional bus tours. These tours offer unique opportunities for members of the public or school groups to get an up-close view of our region's fascinating history. More

  • Stories - We continue to collect, research, and record heritage stories from southwest Manitoba. Our stories are short, engaging glimpses into the history of our region. People, places, and events spanning hundreds of years come together to paint a vibrant picture of southwest Manitoba as a culturally diverse and historically unique region. More

  • Vantage Points - We continue to pursue research on a multitude of historical topics for Vantage Points Volume V - look for it in the spring of 2017! More.

  • Resources for Schools - We are beginning to compile a list of links to materials that educators will find useful, including and Index to downloadable Vantage Points Stories More.
