For many decades following the arrival of the Selkirk settlers, Point Douglas was the most prestigious location in Winnipeg in which to live. Situated on an attractive peninsula of land with the river winding around it, the colonists had easy access to the Hudson Bay post for supplies, drinking water, and transportation. Its citizens were the future leaders of Winnipeg.
