Along the main highway there is a roadside cairn dedicated to the town of Dinant. The actual town site is about a km east of the marker. I understand putting the marker on a roadside turnout so that more people will hopefully stop and read it. I always stop at roadside signs.
The most information I could find about Dinant, was from the roadside marker. Very little online.
I did read that both of the old school buildings were sold and moved to farm yards. Perhaps they still exist.
Have a read below:
The Provincial Archives had 2 photos of the Bush Mine that used to exist in Dinant.

Do you know any history about Dinant? I'd love to hear it!
