Sir Hugh John Macdonald's Winnipeg: a downtown walking tour with Ron Robinson


Take a walk with Sir Hugh John Macdonald from his home at Dalnavert to the Millennium Library. En route, Sir Hugh will introduce you to the many downtown sites that touched his life and continue to play a role in Winnipeg's urban setting. At the Millennium Library, the tour will wrap up in the Local History Room where participants will learn how to find out more about the people, places, and history that surrounds us every day.

Duration: 70 minutes. Meet at Dalnavert, 61 Carlton Street on the veranda. Tour will proceed rain or shine, so prepare for inclement weather.
