Manitoba Club

Enlarge text:  smaller  |  larger

The Manitoba Club was founded on July 16, 1874 at the St. James Restaurant with 25 members. The first club room was a rented space called the Red River Hall in the McDermot Block on Main Street. These quarters went up in flames six months later and the club moved into a rented house across the street. The population of the city at the time was less than 2,000.

In 1881, with the city’s population at 10,000, a new club was built on Garry Street. The club remained in this first-class facility for 24 years. A stained glass window commemorating Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee (1837-1892) had been installed at the Club House during this period.
