Maple Grove Tea Room at Kennedy House

Winnipeg, Manitoba

Kennedy House is a provincial HISTORIC SITE located just north of Winnipeg on River Road, the old highway that connected the RED RIVER COLONY between LOWER FORT GARRY and UPPER FORT GARRY. A number of 19th and early 20th-century houses and other historic sites like St Andrew's Church and Rectory may be seen along the road, which has been declared a "Heritage Parkway".

Kennedy House, built of stone, is one of the largest and best preserved of these early Red River homes. It was built in 1866 by Captain WILLIAM KENNEDY, a Hudson's Bay Company officer and Arctic explorer who led an expedition in search of Sir John FRANKLIN in 1851-52. The house was designated a historic site in 1985 and includes period furnishings, audio-visual displays and a tea room, and is open to the public from mid-May to September.

The picture of the Kennedy House and Maple Grove Tea Room was a great surprise to see.
The roof was redone this past summer and it looks fantastic in this picture you have posted. I would like to point out however, that Maple Grove Tea Room and the Museum are open *early* May to October 1st every year.

Thanks again
