About Seven Oaks House Museum

Built in 1851, the Seven Oaks House is one of the oldest surviving residences in Manitoba.

This was built in 1851-53 for John and Mary (Sinclair) Inkster, the heads of an influential Métis family in the Red River Settlement. Their first log farm house (c.1831) still stands nearby and is among the oldest buildings in Manitoba.

Today their restored homestead and its stunning examples of Red River architecture invite visitors to step back in time, and experience life as it was for a family in the 19th century.

The residence was opened as Seven Oaks House Museum in 1953. This is a Provincial Heritage Site.
