Historic Sites of Manitoba: Currie’s Landing (RM of Cornwallis)

In 1880, William J. Currie arrived in Manitoba and took up a homestead on the banks of the Assiniboine River, east of the future site of Brandon. From there, he received and forwarded freight from steamboats travelling up and down the river. The location became known as Currie’s Landing. It is situated in the Rural Municipality of Cornwallis.
