Historic Sites of Manitoba: Schultz House / Doctor’s House (574 Berlin Avenue, Gretna, Municipality of Rhineland)

Originally built at Gretna in 1885 by businessman Otto Schultz (who was responsible for much of the town’s original boom), this structure is known locally as “The Doctor’s House” because, since the early 1920s, it has been occupied by a series of physicians: Dr. J. A. MacKenzie (1924-1929), Dr. James W. Simpson (1929-1943), Dr. J. A. McNeill (1943-1949), and Dr. Joseph P. Boreskie (1949-2006). The building was purchased and restored by Jeff and Kathy Dyck in 2007.
