Caron House, built by George Caron, is one of the original farm houses on the Assiniboine River. Caron Park was established in 1980 and the Charleswood Historical Society saved the house from demolition. Preserved as a Grade One Historical Building, it anchors the history of Charleswood with links to St. Charles. The Chapman Room offers architectural features from the original home of George Chapman, Charleswood’s first Reeve. Outdoor tours will celebrate the St. Charles Ferry and early Metis history in the Charleswood area while indoor tours welcome you into this historic home. Newly on display in the parlor this year is a beautiful 135 year old silver tea set that was a 16th wedding anniversary gift to the Mr. and Mrs. George Caron, generously donated by the LaFleche family. Be sure to check out the display of books on the history of the area sponsored by Charleswood Outreach and the Library, and bring the kids to play some games!
Caron House is located in Caron Park, just beyond the parking lot at the corner of Cass Street and Musgrove Street.
Guided tours will run throughout the day. Tours will be approximately 25 minutes in length with a maximum 10 guests. No registration required!
