This two-storey red brick structure in Dauphin was designed by Winnipeg architect Joseph Greenfield and constructed in 1908 to house federal government offices: the post office on the main floor, and the land titles and customs offices on the second floor. In 1956, the Dauphin municipal office from the former Town Hall nearby moved into the main floor, using the right-hand door for access. The building was sold into private ownership in 2001 when the municipal office was relocated to a site on Main Street South. It was subsequently renovated into multi-occupant residential space.
