Past Meets Present at Shelmerdine Garden Centre

At Heritage Winnipeg, we we have kept "shards" from buildings long ago demolished.

Our idea was to one day reunite these pieces of our history with Winnipeggers. We are thrilled to announce that that day is now here. The shards have found their home at Shelmerdine Garden Centre. The shards are available for viewing, and some are available to purchase. We encourage all of you to visit Shelmerdine Garden Centre at 7800 Roblin Boulevard to view these memories of historic Winnipeg.

Thank-you so much to Shelmerdine for displaying the shards. We can't wait for them to find permanent homes.

You can read more about the shards at https://www.shelmerdine.com/past/
