Thomas Bunn House


Built in 1862 for Thomas Bunn, a Métis farmer and a well-known lawyer & politician of the day. He was active as a representative in both Louis Riel’s first Provisional Government and Manitoba’s first Legislative Assembly. This Provincial Heritage stone house was built by stonemason Samuel Taylor. Owned and operated as a Bed & Breakfast by Fraser & Bev Stewart this home was first named Victoria Cottage after Queen Victoria. Staying in this Heritage home, with its 3 ft. stone walls, with large rafters of squared timbers fastened with wooden dowels at its peak is an intriguing historical experience.
