Austin is well known for the full size steam engine that sits high atop a strong steel frame at the entrance to the community.  Travelers from all over the world have stopped to get a picture of this pioneer mammoth of the plains. 

School Cairn Repair

The Austin school was built in 1905.and closed in 1974.  Shortly after that John Seaman built the replica which is located on the sidewalk of the original school.  Time has not been kind to this significant reminder of our school memories.

The Austin and District Chamber of Commerce have undertaken the fundraising to have the cairn restored.  Western Restoration Inc from Austin will be doing the restoration.  Along with a commemorative plaque this project is valued at $ 5000. 

We would like to start the restoration this summer.

If you want to help restore the cairn please mail your cheque to:    Austin Chamber of Commerce,

Box 436 Austin MB  R0H 0C0.   

Please indicate ‘cairn project’ on the memo portion of the cheque so we can direct the fundraising to the right account.  You may also make a donation toward the project at the Austin Credit Union. 

Will you please email / facebook to any former students so they will have the opportunity to help out. Thanks for your help.   Austin and District Chamber of Commerce
