Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cox House (7348 Henderson Highway North, RM of St. Clements)

This area in the Rural Municipality of St. Clements was used between 1840 and 1862 as a wood lot by retired Hudson's Bay Company boatman and labourer John Cox. In 1862, Cox gave his newly married son Robert the land here for a house and the Red River frame building that resulted was occupied by members of the Cox family until the mid-1970s. The building, a provincially-designated historic site (July 1994), is undergoing renovations by its present owners.
