Masonic Lodge

Masons at Emerson were amongst the first in Manitoba to form a lodge, but only in 1921, with the construction of this building, did they have a formal home. Currently being restored as a museum, the building retains all of its original character. The symbolic components of the order, as well as the regalia for meetings are all intact, from the red floor and blue ceiling, to the altars and chairs, voting box and chimes. The original part of the building, with the gable roof, is highlighted by the classically detailed entrance façade. The flat-roofed section was added in 1948 for additional meeting space.

Pinawa Dam Provincial Heritage Park

Located on the Winnipeg River, Pinawa Dam was Manitoba’s first hydro-electric generating station. The dam was developed in response to the demand for residential and commercial power and was crucial to the rapid growth of Winnipeg in the pre-war years. The station began delivering power in 1906 and was closed in 1951 to allow the full flow of the Winnipeg River to serve the Seven Sisters Hydro Station built downstream. It is a tranquil park with large open spaces, plenty of shade, the peace of falling water and the relaxing songs of the birds. This is a great place to come to picnic, to hike the nature trails, to rediscover its past.

Pine Falls Generating Station

Construction of the Pine Falls Generating Station, on the lower stretch of the Winnipeg River, began in the late 1940s in an effort to keep the supply of electricity ahead of the demand, which was exceeding all earlier estimates by the province's power planners. It was a dynamic time when industry and agriculture in Manitoba were rapidly expanding.  Pine Falls, next to the town of Powerview, is the last generating station to use the Winnipeg River's abundant waters before reaching Lake Winnipeg at Traverse Bay, only 13 kilometres (km) away.
