Continuing a Century of Tradition
Ralph Connor House is an important Canadian legacy, a Winnipeg heritage treasure and valuable educational and community resource.
The House is named for Ralph Connor, the pen name of Reverend Charles W. Gordon, a prolific and popular writer who gained international acclaim, for best selling novels Black Rock, The Man From Glengarry, Glengarry School Days and many others, but also as a Presbyterian minister and one of the founders of the United Church of Canada.
Today, the House is owned by the Friends of The Ralph Connor House, that has launched a 21st Century Campaign to ensure the legacy of the Gordon family continues, as well as the good work of the University Women's Club of Winnipeg, who have called Ralph Connor House home for over 70 years.
The year 2014 marked the 100th Anniversary of Ralph connor House, a Winnipeg mansion built from the proceeds of Reverend Charles Gordon's (a.k.a. Ralph Connor) famous novels.
