Seven Oaks House is the oldest home remaining in Winnipeg. It was built in 1851-53 for John and Mary (Sinclair) Inkster, the heads of an influential Métis trading family. Their first log farm house (c.1831) still stands nearby and is among the oldest buildings in Manitoba. The beautifully restored homestead and its stunning examples of Red River architecture invite visitors to step back in time, and experience life as it was for a family in the 1800s. Learn about traditional Métis art, and witness Winnipeg’s transition from frontier outpost to a bustling metropolis.
