The Old Hospital Gallery & Museum

Located right in Manning. Built as an United Church Missionary Hospital, the Battle River Hospital was a key reason for the development of the Town of Manning.  Built in 1937 by community volunteers, and operated by missionaries, the Battle River Hospital was one of the first buildings in the area.  It quickly became an integral part of the region.

The hospital remained in use until 1955 when the new, more modern Manning Municipal Hospital was built.
