A Journey Back in Time

The Manitoba Agricultural Museum offers a fun and nostalgic slice of life from the early 1900s. The Homesteaders’ Village is a key highlight of the Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion & Stampede, enjoyed by people of all ages – especially first-time festival goers.

The village includes:

  • an 1890s schoolhouse where you can try out writing with fountain pens and slate boards;
  • a blacksmith’s shop where you can watch an expert craftsman at work;
  • handicraft demonstrations;
  • an old-fashioned grist mill (and you can take home a bag of flour);
  • a general store where you can purchase candy and ice cream;
  • and much more!
