    Scope and content:
    This map is a copy of the original 1875 map. It depicts part of the parish of Ste. Agathe, south of present-day Winnipeg. In addition to showing dimensions and acreage of lots, land under cultivation, woodlands, prairie and meadowlands, it has additional information concerning land ownership, sales, etc. with notes dating to 1892. As is typical of Métis settlements, the land is divided into long and narrow river lots. The French-speaking and Roman Catholic parish of Ste. Agathe developed in the mid-1800s on the stretch of the Red River between the southern edge of the parish of St. Norbert and the US border. This Métis community was formerly known as Pointe à Grouette and Petite Pointe à Saline. It became a parish formally only in 1876.
