Good morning passengers, welcome aboard the bus for another sober day on the highway.
CH, since your always on the bus hours before the rest of us get going, I'm sure M-Bob won't mind you snoozing in his comfy chair.
Today, the ol' bus is going to roll by Pilot Mound, Manitoba
In 1881 a town site was chosen and buildings went up on a 116 foot elevation that could be seen from 16 miles away. The notion being wagon train settlers crossing the prairies would see the township.
But, CPR rail later laid tracks and skirted the town by a mile. So in 1904 a new site was reincorporate and all the buildings were moved. The only structure remaining was the stone bank vault which is still standing today!
