Ste. Elizabeth, Manitoba (CA)

This was my third visit to Ste. Elizabeth (small ghost town in Manitoba, Canada), and I wasn’t sure whether I’d be able to find anything new to shoot or not. It turned out that all the three houses looked even more vandalized than they were last summer, so the photo opps were very limited.

Across the street from the ghost town there’s a house and a trailer where the “mayor” of the town lives. He takes care of the church (see photo #3), which — despite being in this God-forsaken place — is in good shape and still fully functional.

I reviewed a few web sites on Ste. Elizabeth, MB and have noted that there is no mention at all of the group of communal Christians that lived there from 1979 to 1982, having arrived from Quebec and having been assisted by the Oak Bluff Hutterite colony. There were approximately 15 people who lived in the commune.

During its time, there were 8 houses, an old Hutterite community hall donated to the group. The garage across the street was owned and operated as a business by the group (wood working, furniture refinishing and some welding). The group had a large garden for most of its vegetables and preserves. Some worked outside the group in Morris and area businesses. There was a school operated by the commune as well. The project fell apart for financial reasons due mainly to the finanial mismanagement by the group’s leader Francis Cormier.
