Manitoba Legislative Building (PHS)

14

Ascend the grandest staircase in the province in this priceless monument of local Tyndall stone.

At the turn of the twentieth century, members of the provincial government were unanimous in their desire to construct a building that would serve as a symbol for the people of Manitoba. Completed in 1920, the Beaux-Arts Classical-style building features a grand staircase, matching bison statues, Manitoba Tyndall limestone and the famous Golden Boy statue atop the dome. The grounds contain statues of Queen Victoria, La Vérendrye, statesmen and poets. Location: Broadway and Osborne.
