Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Louis Cabin (RM of St. Andrews)

This building in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews was built in the early 20th century as a summer home for the family of Francois Xavier Gadiou-Saint Louis, who founded the Petersfield town site and resort on which it sits. The cottage retains its original features, including an open-plan living room, added verandah, and porch subdivided into bedrooms for additional sleeping room. It was subsequently occupied and maintained by the Best family for over seven decades.
