Sep 10, 2014 · Heritage homes in Winnipeg’s Armstrong’s Point open their doors to the public in a Heritage Home tour The history inherent in hundred-year-old houses tells us things about the time period in which the home was built as well as something about the intervening years, when the houses were modified and adapted to meet the needs of the residents.
This brings us to the end of the walking tour. Armstrong’s Point was a special place, a walled-off place, where families grew up, where the children frequently married “the boy next door” and then moved down the street. The Woods, the Blairs, the Rileys, the Crowes, the Tuppers, the Ryans, the Chambres all had relatives as neighbours.
History will come alive on Sunday, Sept. 7 when Armstrong Point hosts their Heritage House and Garden Tour. What began as a subdivision in 1881 for Winnipeg’s elite settlers remains a tranquil hidden jewel 2 km from city centre.

The heart of the continent has attained historic site designation. After eight years of concerted volunteer effort, April Kassum, Chair of Armstrong Point Heritage Committee Heritage House Tour, is pleased to announce Manitoba has its first designated historic neighbourhood.
Armstrong’s Point displays a great deal of variation in its built heritage; many different periods are represented in the styles, materials, rooflines, form, and massing of the architecture. Despite the variations in the built form, a harmonious composition is created by the careful placement of buildings within a spacious and green streetscape.
