This two-storey brick former residence on Hargrave Street in Winnipeg was designed and built in 1902 by owner Archibald Macdonald. Used as a private residence, and periodically as a boarding house, into the 1970s, it was operated as Osborne House, a retreat for victims of domestic abuse, in the late 1970s.
