Thomas Scott Memorial Orange Hall

Enlarge text:  smaller  |  larger

The Red River rebellion spurred on the growth of the Orange Order in the Canadian West. Private Thomas Hickey of the Ontario Rifles was one of the soldiers sent to help quell the rebellion, bringing with him Orange warrant, No. 1307.

On September 18, 1870, the first Orange Lodge west of Ontario was organized on board the steamer the ‘Jessie MacKenzie’, a boat owned by one of Louis Riel’s officials. The meeting was held in the cabin, because a room was not available in the town of Fort Garry.
