Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Andrew’s Rectory (RM of St. Andrews)

The St. Andrew’s Rectory, in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews, built in 1854 by stonemason Duncan McRae, is an excellent example of mid-19th century Red River architecture. Exhibits on the main floor of the rectory interpret Red River architecture, and the roles of the Church Missionary Society and the Church of England in the settlement of the Red River and Western Canada. A plaque on the site was erected in 1962 by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
