Midwinter Park Bison Statue
May 26, 2019Sunday: 1:00pm
Nairn Avenue is located on the east side of the Red River, running east/west off Stadacona Street at the Louise Bridge. It became the first commercial and business area in NE Winnipeg in the 1880’s – 1890’s when the area was still part of St. Boniface.
Some of the features of this walking tour will be the colourful La Salle Hotel, the docks for the River Rouge and the Lady Winnipeg river boats, and a circa 1900 bank.
We will reveal locations where there were livery stables, blacksmiths, a billiard club, a legion, a hotel, the Mineral Springs Sanitarium of Winnipeg and the tale of a few ghosts that pop into one building’s history!
Guided tour will start at 1:00pm, lasting 60 minutes, departing from the Midwinter Park bison statue, located on the south side of Midwinter Avenue between Levis Street and Stadacona Street.
