Historic Sites of Manitoba: Wilson House / Marringhurst Heritage House (RM of Argyle)

Built in 1909 by Richard Milner Wilson, the Marringhurst Heritage House is now a designated municipal heritage site. The building has been fully restored to its original grandeur. Currently, it is operating as a turn-of-the-century farmhome museum and is open for tours on request. The spacious lawns and newly completed, modern kitchen facilities provide an elegant venue for weddings, anniversary celebrations, meetings, and retreats. It is located in the Rural Municipality of Argyle, 14 kilometers west of Pilot Mound on Highway 253 and 1.5 kilometers north. Tours are offered with a small admission.
