The Manitoba House Trading Post was established in 1797 on the west shore of Lake Manitoba, about fifteen miles north of the Narrows. Its original name was Doubtful Post, likely because of a lack of confidence in the survival of the post at the time of its establishment. Treaty 2 was signed on August 21, 1871, at Manitoba House. A number of notable individuals served at Manitoba House, including Isaac Cowie, as fur trader, and Archibald McDonald, as clerk.

Famous quotes containing the words post and/or trading:
“Fear death?to feel the fog in my throat,
The mist in my face,
When the snows begin, and the blasts denote
I am nearing the place,
The power of the night, the press of the storm,
The post of the foe;
Where he stands, the Arch Fear in a visible form,
Yet the strong man must go:”
—Robert Browning (18121889)
“His farm was grounds, and not a farm at all;
His house among the local sheds and shanties
Rose like a factors at a trading station.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
