Are you looking for more interesting historical places in Beausejour? The Manitoba Glass Works site is a provincially designated heritage site where you can dive into the history of the first glass container factory in Western Canada. Explore the ruins of a factory that once employed 350 people and produced 15,000 to 20,000 jars, medicine and ink bottles per week between 1906 and 1914.

While there are no buildings standing on the site today, the original concrete foundations remain, and you may even be lucky to find some glass remnants from the early 1900s!

Located near the Manitoba Glass Works Factory is the Wally Chryplywy Nature Park. This park encompasses the original silica sandpits, which supplied the glass factory, and features 5 km of nature trails perfect for walking, hiking, and biking. In addition, the park provides a four-season trail that allows for cross-country skiing during the winter months. The trail is simply breathtaking and is a great way to enjoy nature in the community of Beausejour.

The small town of Beausejour, Manitoba, is synonymous with snowmobile racing. Every year in March, hundreds of racers from Canada and the U.S. converge on the town’s historic ice oval track with the Canadian Power Toboggan Championships and also head out to explore the trails, which are maintained by the Brokenhead Trail Blazers Power Toboggan Club. The area offers more than 230 kilometres of snowmobiling trails in the Beausejour area.

If you love art, you can’t pass up on getting the chance to experience original work done by the hands of Leo Mol. This hidden gem is simply magnificent. St. Mary’s Catholic Church is home to the ceiling and wall paintings of the famous and now deceased internationally acclaimed Manitoba artist Leo Mol. Since their completion in 1952, the paintings have been treasured by both parishioners and tourists alike. They have also gained immense value with the growing recognition of Leo Mol as an accomplished artist and can only be found in Beausejour.

Visiting the Mars Hills Wildlife Management Area is a journey that promises magnificent sights, an abundance of wildlife, and a soothing experience out in nature.

White spruce, black spruce, balsam fir and wildflowers grow in abundance in open areas, and a few grassland areas with tallgrass prairie species have been identified.

The Mars Hills WMA contains an important wintering area for deer, along with the occasional moose and black bear. In addition, ruffed grouse, sharp-tailed grouse, spruce grouse, a variety of raptors, and numerous non-game birds breed and migrate through the area.

A network of snowmobile trails crosses the Mars Hills WMA, and cross-country skiers also enjoy the fresh sights brought to this area by blankets of snow for a four-season adventure on a landscape like no other.
