Historic Sites of Manitoba: La Verendrye Monument (Legislative Building, Winnipeg)

Pierre Gaultier, Sieur de la Verendrye (1685-1749), born in Canada. In search of the Western sea, he explored the central part of the North American continent to within sight of the Rocky Mountains. He reached the Red River at the Forks (Winnipeg) in 1738.

A plaque at the base of the monument was affixed in 1958 by the Historic Sites Advisory Board of Manitoba.
