Town of Russell, Manitoba
The wooden arches were rescued from the Town of Dauphin as they were tearing down the old arena. They were seven days away from being sent to a land fill site. As crews worked to disassemble the
structure, a senior Dauphin resident brought forward a photograph of the new wooden arches arriving by train. There in the picture was a clear stamp indicating that the 32 ply nailed wooden laminate arches came from a former Russell Business, the Glu-Rite Rafters Company, owned by Carl Mantei. It is truly a homecoming for the massive structures. The arches are both historical evidence of superior craftsmanship and modern engineering genius.
