Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Montreal Building (5 North Railway Avenue, Ethelbert, Municipality of Ethelbert)

Constructed in 1922, this one-storey brick building in Ethelbert replaced the Bank of Montreal’s earlier wood-frame structure. In 1931, the building was purchased by Michael Hyrhorczuk, a prominent Ethelbert resident, for use as a law office and residence. In the early 1960s the building was purchased by the Rural Municipality of Ethelbert to serve as its municipal office. It is a muncipally-designated historic site.
