St. Boniface

St. Boniface Cathedral
On August 15, 1906, Archbishop Langevin blessed the cornerstone of what became one of the most imposing churches in Western Canada. This stunning example of French Romanesque architecture, was destroyed by fire on July 22, 1968.

St. Boniface City Hall
The town of St. Boniface grew from a small settlement on the east bank of the Red River into a vibrant town that shared in Winnipeg’s boom at the turn of the century. St. Boniface grew rapidly, and was deserving of a new City Hall in 1905.

St. Boniface Museum
Constructed of white oak timber frame, the two-storey hipped roof structure took nearly six years to construct (1846-1851). The result was a magnificent two-storey Red River frame building featuring a mix of many French-Canadian design influences.

Gabrielle Roy is widely considered to be one of the most important Francophone writers in Canadian history and one of the most influential Canadian authors.
