Meet In Historical Elegance
Ralph Connor House on Armstrong Point was built in 1913 by the pioneer, author, historian and theologian Charles William Gordon. The architectural detailing and beautiful hardwood paneling remain in their original state, and many of the circa 1900 furnishings originate with the house.
The estate, designated a heritage property, offers a distinctive setting for meetings and social functions of varying sizes.
The facilities, unparalleled in Winnipeg, can meet a variety of requirements. Intimate dining, business meetings or receptions can be accommodated in the privacy of individual rooms, or the spaciousness of an entire floor.
The garden setting, overlooking the Assiniboine is a favourite for wedding parties and outdoor gatherings.
Ralph Connor House is a smoke free environment.
