About Ross House Museum
One of the last remaining examples of Red River frame architecture in Winnipeg, Ross House was the first Post Office in Western Canada. Opened as a museum in 1949.
It was built in 1854 for William and Jemima Ross, members of a prominent Métis family in the Red River Settlement.
Their carefully restored log home now offers visitors an immersive look into daily life in early Manitoba.
Explore the home of the prominent Métis family- the Ross family as well as the operation of early postal service in the region.
