  Manitoba Historical Society
Founded in June 1879 by an Act of the Manitoba Legislature, the Manitoba Historical Society (MHS) is the oldest organization in western Canada devoted to the promotion of public interest in, and preservation of, the region’s historical resources.

MHS recognizes and honors the contributions of the early settlers of Manitoba by awarding the Centennial Farm Award to descendants of the pioneer families who have maintained ownership of the original farm for 100 years or more.
