Historic Sites of Manitoba: Voyageur Bridge (Seine River, Winnipeg)

This pedestrian bridge across the Seine River in Winnipeg commemorates local pioneers Jean Baptiste Lagimodière and Marie Anne Gaboury. Following a land grant by Lord Selkirk in 1817, the couple settled on the west side of the river. The bridge, connecting the river’s eastern bank with the Lagimodiere-Gaboury Historic Park on the western side, was dedicated in September 1979. Two plaques mark the event.
