Visitors - Destination Sites
Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site of Canada
 
Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site is commemorated as the place where Treaty #1 was signed between the Ojibwa and Swampy Cree of Manitoba and the Crown.
Lower Fort Garry is also commemorated for its role as a major agricultural and industrial supply centre in the fur trade of Western Canada.
 
The fort's strategic location for water transportation was integral to these activities.
 
The surviving stone structures at Lower Fort Garry represent significant examples of early fur trade architecture.
 
We invite you to step back in time, to sense the growing spirit of the West and to visit this busy Hudson Bay Company post on the mighty Red River.


Captain Kennedy House
 
River Road is a scenic drive situated along the west bank of the Red River, 10 km / 6.2 miles north of the Winnipeg perimeter highway off PTH #9 on PR #238. As a heritage park, its role in our system of provincial parks is to:
  • protect sites of cultural significance;
  • promote appreciation and public understanding of the park's cultural and historical significance; and
  • provide opportunities for picnicking, fishing and viewing of the historic Red River.
There are five sites along the eleven kilometer stretch of Red River. Both the south and north interpretive nodes offer orientation information about the cultural features along the parkway. From there, delve into the past which chronicles a nineteenth-century way of life. Visit the shell of Scott House to learn about local stone building architecture; Twin Oaks, a nineteenth-century finishing school for girls; and Kennedy House, a stone house owned by Arctic explorer and geographer Captain William Kennedy. Meet the women who interpret the Kennedy lifestyle of the late 1800s.
 
Kennedy House includes a glassed-in tea-room overlooking the river, an English garden and an audio-visual display room. Be sure to pay a visit to St. Andrews Church, the oldest continuously used church in western Canada. For more information, contact the Captain Kennedy Tea House at (204) 334-2498.
