Powering Up Rural Manitoba

Creator(s): Manitoba Electrical Museum & Education Centre

Slowly, very slowly, electricity crept through the countryside of Manitoba in the early years of the last century, until a dynamic effort after World War II "electrified" 50,000 farms in just 10 years. This Community Stories exhibit celebrates the monumental change brought by the farm electrification program and the many people who made the achievement possible.
