Built in the mid-1850s, this house was the residence for a private girls' school run by Matilda Davis until 1873. The school was supported by families of the Red River Settlement and by officers of the Hudson's Bay Company from across western Canada who sent their daughters here to be educated as English ladies. The residence could board up to 40 girls. Along with two log classrooms it was used to teach French, music, drawing, dancing, needlework and deportment. The building survives as a fine example of architecture used at Red River.

Datant du milieu des ann?es 1850, ce b?timent h?bergeait les pensionnaires de l'?cole priv?e par Matilda Davis jusqu'en 1873. Les familles de la Rivi?re Rouge et les agents de la Compagnie de la Baie d'Hudson ?tablis dans l'Ouest y envoyaient leurs filles pour une ?ducation conforme aux usages de la bonne soci?t? anglaise. Au pensionnat, qui pouvait loger jusqu'? quarante ?l?ves, ? raison de deux par lit, et dans deux salles de classe en rondins, on enseignait le fran?ais, la musique, le dessin, la danse, les travauvaux ? l'aiguille et les bonnes mani?res. C'est l? un bel exemple de l'architecture de la r?gion.
