Watrous Heritage Website & Archives

Beginning in 2012, the Watrous Manitou Heritage Centre board began plans for a Heritage Centre & Archives in Watrous.  In 2018 the large Water Corporation building at 403 Main St. was purchased and with some delalys because of Covid, renovations and displays are near done as of January 2022.  The website and online archives are here:  Watrous-Manitou Beach Heritage Centre.
