UKRAINIAN Heritage Buildings . . . and an excellent Potato Salad

If you’re interested in Ukrainian pioneer history, you don’t actually have to go to a museum.  Just pull off the highway in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, or Alberta.

Menzie, Manitoba is a treasure trove. 

This little house in Menzie is open for visitors!  Bryan even tried out the scythe.

Elphinstone, Manitoba

Ethelbert, Manitoba

An abandoned hall on the way to Swan River is now home to a swarm of bees.

There’s only a sign to mark the village of Ukraina, Manitoba, and this derelict church.

Krydor, Saskatchewan

I like the road signs in Hafford, Saskatchewan!
