We celebrate Indigenous and Métis peoples, buffalo hunters, early settlers, military veterans and the heritage of Charleswood,.

Caron House, built by George Caron, is one of the original farm houses on the Assiniboine River. Caron Park was established in 1980 and the Charleswood Historical Society saved the house from demolition. Preserved as a Grade One Historical Building, it anchors the history of Charleswood with links to St. Charles. The Chapman Room offers architectural features from the original home of George Chapman, Charleswood’s first Reeve. Outdoor tours will celebrate the St. Charles Ferry and early Metis history in the Charleswood area while indoor tours welcome you into this historic home. The highlight of the indoor tour will be the newly redecorated interior with beautiful period-appropriate Victorian colours!
