Historic Sites of Manitoba: McCreary House / Cantin House (411 First Avenue, McCreary, Municipality of McCreary)

This two-storey, wood frame building in McCreary, in the Municipality of McCreary, was built in 1903 as McCreary House, a boarding house for travelers along the nearby Burrows Trail. It later became the private residence of the Cantin family. Exterior renovations have entailed removal of its original verandah. In 2015, it was commemorated with a plaque in the Memorable Manitobans: The Homes program.
