Morris Heritage Walking Trails
“This project, once completed, will be the beginning of many conversations in the sharing of personal memories and stories.”
Project Overview: Create Walking Trails
Location: Morris, MB
The community of Morris, Manitoba sits on the bank of the Red River and has seen more than its share of floods because of it. But high waters aren’t enough to down the city’s hope in protecting its history. The Morris Heritage Walking Trails project is setting out to tell the story of Morris and highlight its many Heritage Points of Interest, including Eaton Houses, First Hospital, Brick Factory, Flour Mills, ‘Old Indian trail’, Forks in Morris, and the Manitoba 150 Tree.
These walking trails will bring the community together to tell stories of the past while creating memories for the future. The project looks to engage and inform the community through accompanying online resources and expects to put a little spring into the step of those from all walks of life.
Red River Mutual is on a path to help Morris Heritage Walking Trails spruce up their story by providing $2,000 that will be used to create pictorial brochures, two large billboards with maps highlighting spots on the trails, and an interactive system with QR codes to connect the Trails to the Morris & District Centennial Museum.
