Scope and Content
This project series documents additions to the Minaki Lodge in Minaki, Ontario from 1974-1977. The office identified the project number as 7423.
The Minaki Lodge, owned by the Government of Ontario at the time of this project, was located on the banks of the Winnipeg River and was originally built in 1914 by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The site included an X-shaped main lodge, a motor lodge and power house, a ski chalet and Holst Point on a nearby island. This project, which was phase II of the work, consisted of the addition of a new convention hall and approximately 200 new guest rooms to the lodge. Different schemes were proposed for the locations of these new buildings, including attaching them to the existing structure, or building them separately near the main lodge. Phase I of this work began under a different project number, assigned by the office (see project series AP018.S1.1974.PR17 in this fonds).
The project is recorded through drawings and textual records dating from 1974-1977. Some drawings in this project series include reprographic copies dating from 1925, which were prepared by the Canadian National Railways. Textual records include conference reports and correspondence.
Materials in this project series have been kept in their original order and/or arranged by material type.
