Historic Sites Scavenger Hunt

Using information available on the Manitoba Historical Society (MHS) website located here, children locate these historic sites on maps of Winnipeg and Manitoba, or on a Google map.

Children can be asked to identify the location of the historic site by town, municipality, street name and number, or by latitude and longitude. They can be further challenged to read the accompanying information to identify an interesting fact about the person or monument.

Here are some sites to get the process going. Find the site using Google Earth, by entering its location (latitude and longitude) into the “Fly to” box:
