Arrow The Chicago of the North

THE EXCHANGE DISTRICT
____________________
Winnipeg, Manitoba


Winnipeg's Exchange District is one of the most intact early 20th century commercial districts
in North America. By the turn of the 20th century, Winnipeg had become a major railway centre
and the commercial gateway to Western Canada. The city quickly grew into Canada's third largest
and became known as the "Chicago of the North." The Exchange District covers an area of 20
blocks just north of Winnipeg's Downtown and contains a large collection of elegant brick buildings
and warehouses. In 1997, the Exchange District was designated a National Historic Site.
