History of Maginot


Maginot was part of the City of St. Boniface when it became part of the City of Winnipeg which came into legal existence on January 1, 1972.

Much of this neighbourhood's land is taken up by parks and recreational facilities and the Louis Riel Arts and Technology Centre, 5 deBourmont Avenue (built in 1970), part of the Louis Riel School Division. There is a large row housing development on Wickham Road built in 1969. The single-family dwelling stock in the east part of Maginot dates to the 1945-1960 era, although there are a few Dugas Street homes that date to the pre-World War I era. In the west, the development along Wickham Road and Berkshire Bay date to the 1960s.
