History of Munroe West

Heritage Resources

Munroe West was part of the City of East Kildonan (incorporated July 1, 1957) when it became part of the City of Winnipeg which came into legal existence on January 1, 1972.

Munroe West is a mainly residential neighbourhood located on the east side of Henderson Highway, the area's main commercial and transportation thoroughfare. While there are a handful of pre-World War I homes (especially in the neighbourhood's southwest corner), much of the development occurred in the decades that followed, most of it in the form of single family detached homes.
