Shaunavon's Historic Firewall
Fires were of great concern in early Shaunavon. Most of the new buildings were of wood construction and there was little in the way of firefighting equipment. Shortly after the great fire of 1918, which destroyed 18 business places, this firewall was built between the Fennell Bros. Hardware Store and McMahon’s General Store (255 & 265 Centre Street). These walls were costly to build and are uncommon.
