Birds Hill Real Estate Listings and Information
Birds Hill is a popular community located a few kilometers north east of Winnipeg in the Rural Municipality of East St. Paul just off Lagimodiere Blvd. The town is a few kilometers east of the Red River and is home to the municipal offices. A river lot of land in the area was granted to Doctor Curtis James Bird in the late 19th century, after whom the area is named. A portion of the town is located on top of a hill formed during the last ice age by a glacial sand deposit, or esker. The hills in the area were a place for settlers and native peoples to escape to when fleeing high flood waters along the Red River valley. Originally the area was settled by farmers and the gravel deposits in the area were used to build roads in Winnipeg and nearby locations. The town is growing rapidly with major subdivisions nearby increasing both population and business. Some of the most expensive real estate in Manitoba is now located in the area, especially near or along the Red River.
