Erected between 1852 and 1854, this large limestone dwelling housed the rector of nearby St. Andrew's church and complemented the massive construction of that building. The rectory, built for the Reverend William Cockran was one of the first stone houses in the Red River Settlement. Like a number of substantial homes built here for retired officers of the Hudson's Bay Company, it reflects the style and character of important dwellings at company posts. In this way the rectory provides a good example of the architecture used at Red River.

Le Presbyt?re de St. Andrew's. Construite dans les ann?es 1852 ? 1854 pour le ministre anglican William Cockran, cette vaste ridence en pierre calcaire est l'une des premi?res du genre dans la colonie de la Rivi?re Rouge. Elle s'harmonisait avec la structure massive de l'?lise voisine. Comme plusiurs des maisons imposantes construites pour les officiers retrait de la Compagnie de la Baie d'Hudson, le presbyt?re rappelle les b?timents importants de postes de la Compagnie et illustre bien l'architecture de la Rivi?re Rouge.
