Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lockport Heritage Park / Kenosewun Visitor Centre and Museum (RM of St. Clements)

Lockport Heritage Park is home to this interpretive centre, named from the Cree word, Kenosewun, meaning “there are many fishes.” For thousands of years, First Nations people fished at the St. Andrews Rapids and for a short time grew crops at the site.
