Historical Societies

The Centre for Rupert's Land Studies

The Manitoba Historical Society founded in 1879, is the oldest organization in Western Canada dedicated to preserving our past for future generations. The MHS supports preservation, promotion, research, and education through award programs which recognize the works of Manitoba youth, and the many farms, businesses, and organizations that have operated continuously for 100 years or more. The website includes historical articles on a wide range of individuals and institutions.
