Memorable Manitobans: The Homes

Ross House Louis Riel Dalnavert Museum Nellie McClung

The Manitoba Historical Society, in collaboration with the Manitoba Real Estate Association, is looking for the homes of Manitoba’s most memorable citizens.

Selection criteria:

  • A nominee may be from any walk of life, living or deceased, but their home must still exist.
  • The nominated residence should not already have provincial or national recognition.
  • Where a nominee has had multiple residences, the one where they made their greatest contributions should be listed.

London Blue Plaques
The oldest commemorative plaque program in the world, started in 1867, London Blue Plaques are the model for Memorable Manitobans: The Homes.


Homes nominated by the general public will be examined by a selection committee made up of professional historians and members of the Manitoba Historical Society. When a house is chosen, we will seek permission from the present owner and, with his or her agreement, arrange for a commemorative plaque to be made and installed. Eligible houses that cannot receive a plaque in one year, because of limits on funds available, will be carried over to the next year. The Manitoba Historical Society and the Manitoba Real Estate Association intend that the program will carry on, with about ten plaques installed every year, as long as there are suitable candidates.

To propose a home for commemoration in this program, please fill out this nomination form and press Submit at the bottom of the page.
