Historic Sites of Manitoba: Pembina Trail Monument (973 Red River Drive, RM of Ritchot)

This monument commemorates the Pembina Trail, the route by which fur traders travelled from Upper Fort Garry to Fort Daer in the 1800s. Paved in the 1920s, it was named the Lord Selkirk Highway in the early 1930s and assigned Provincial Trunk Highway No. 14. The northerly portion of the original route is now Turnbull Drive in Winnipeg and Red River Drive in the Rural Municipality of Ritchot.
