Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scott House (266 River Road, RM of St. Andrews)

The stone walls of this former residence along River Road in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews was built between 1855 and 1856 for HBC employee William Scott. It replaced an original Red River frame log house. Made from locally-quarried limestone, this was a typical small farmhouse in the period. Outbuildings included a summer kitchen, outhouse, storehouse, granary, stable, and barn. It is now part of the River Road Provincial Heritage Park.
