Memorable Manitobans: George “Dutch George” Emmerling

Hotelier.

Known as “Dutch George,” Emmerling came to Red River in 1860 and opened a hotel on Main Street. He ran the major hotel establishment in the village during the Red River Rebellion. It had a substantial liquor cupboard and two pool tables. He left in May 1871, selling out to Robert A. Davis.
