Historic Sites of Manitoba: Delorme House / Delorme Bridge (RM of Ritchot)

A plaque on a bridge over the Red River near St. Adolphe in the Rural Municipality of Ritchot was unveiled on 28 June 1990 in commemoration of Pierre Delorme, former Minister of Agriculture and President of the Council of Manitoba, and the first MP to represent Provencher. His home, now at the St. Norbert Provincial Heritage Park, once stood at the west approach to the bridge.
