Storehouse of Isda by WayneBenedet Storehouse of Isda by WayneBenedet
I am sure there are other stone granaries but it is not something that I have encountered in Manitoba before.

Ha! Maybe somewhere else in the world... I don't see any around here, and I never saw any in Iowa. :D

I have seen them in Southern Ontario, they also build circular barns down there.

Very interesting. What nationality first settled there? Like in my part of the Midwest it was mostly Scandinavian and German with a little Dutch thrown in. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the architecture of the countries left behind.

Likely you are right. There is a bit of history about the area, but nothing specific that I could find about the nationalities of the settlers.

Sure don't see them often anywhere in the North American continent (europe mostly, I think) that's for sure. This is pretty darn cool 8-)

from what you say John, I wonder if there is not am immigration connection. eg: a family immigrated to canada and built in the European way. That seems to have happened with a number of groups.

Very impressive structure - I assume it was rather used for storage than for living?
