Description of Historic Place
Cabana Community Hall is a Municipal Heritage Property located within the Rural Municipality of Meadow Lake No. 588 approximately ten kilometres southeast of the Town of Meadow Lake. The property features a one-storey, wood-frame building constructed in 1935, surrounded by large open grounds.
The heritage value of the Cabana Community Hall lies in its historic use as a public building. The property was constructed in 1935 as a mission of the Roman Catholic Church. Originally named Church of St. Girard, the church was locally known as Cabana church in honour of Father Jean Baptiste Cabana, a missionary who was instrumental in the organization of the mission. The property operated as a church until 1970 when the congregation disbanded. The property was subsequently transferred to the Cabana Community Club, which continued use of the property as a place of community gathering by providing a place for local events and activities. In the years since 1970, the club has constructed many improvements to the grounds that have enhanced the property’s use for a variety of recreational activities and sports.
