St. Andrew's Rectory National Historic Site

The Rectory’s distinctive Red River architecture hints at the role that the Church Missionary Society and the Church of England played in the lives of the Red River settlers in the 19th century. See the soaring spire of the Gothic Revival-style St. Andrew’s church across the road.

St. Andrew’s Rectory National Historic Site is on Treaty No. 1 territory: the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Anisininew, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and the homeland of the Red River Métis.
