Occupants | Photos & Maps | Sources

This historic house in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews sits near the present-day site of Lockport, at the place known as the Rapids.

The land for Hawthorne Lodge was originally granted to George Taylor Jr., surveyor of the Red River Settlement, from the Hudson's Bay Company in 1839. It was undeveloped until 1858, when John Edward Harriott purchased the property and built the first house. The property has changed hands several times in its history, housing numerous notable Manitobans.

In 1918, the original house was destroyed by fire. The owner at the time, Dunbar Hibbard Hudson, founder of the Hudson Bay Paper Company, subsequently built the house that is still present on the site, spelled on an entrance sign as Hawthorn Lodge.
