Historic Sites of Manitoba: Meighen House (131 Dufferin Avenue East, Portage la Prairie)

This house in Portage la Prairie is believed to have been built in the late 1890s. From about 1908 to 1915, it was occupied by Arthur Meighen (1874-1960), to date the only Manitoban to serve as Prime Minister of Canada. In 2010, it was commemorated with a plaque in the Memorable Manitobans: The Homes program.
