Historic Sites of Manitoba: Red River Mouth (RM of St. Clements)

This site at the mouth of the Red River, in the Rural Municipality of St. Clements, was the historic navigation channel for boat traffic, dredged by the federal government from the 1880s to 1999. All the boats now in the Marine Museum of Manitoba at Selkirk would have travelled through this channel to reach Lake Winnipeg.
