Thomas Bunn House – Pictures and History

Walking in the door of the Thomas Bunn House, you feel like you are in a living museum. This charming and stately stone home has been standing since 1862, when it was built by stone mason Samuel Taylor for Thomas Bunn, fulfilling a promise to his wife Rachel that they would live on higher ground to escape the notorious spring floods of the Red River in Winnipeg.

Thomas Bunn was a local politician in the 1860s, and was a member of Louis Riel’s council, as well as one of the first provincial legislators.

The home has authentic artifacts, and was designated a heritage site by the province of Manitoba. The home has been in the Stewart family since 1944.

By operating the Thomas Bunn House as a B&B property, we have the opportunity to share this heritage experience with others.

Whether it’s a weekend getaway, a family gathering or a fishing trip, the Thomas Bunn House bed and breakfast offers a unique experience.
