10. 300 First Avenue
Built in 1911 and in 1921 became the home of one of Manitoba's first female
law students. Changes had to be made to the Law Society Act to include
women as "persons" before Melrose Sissons could be accepted to the college
of law and her admittance to the bar in 1915. She married another lawyer
and fought for women's rights as a homemaker and community volunteer.
11. ROSAMOND ROAD
This cairn is on the site of the former four-room Rosamond School. The cairn also marks locations of 14
one-room schools and the two-room Glencairn School which were sites of education in McCreary and District.
12. CATHOLIC CEMETERY
This site was set aside as a cemetery in 1905. Interments in various locations previous to that date were
disinterred and moved by horse and wagon to be re-interred at this site. The early Burrows Trail passed directly
through this site.
