Historic Sites of Manitoba: Graham House (706 Lorne Avenue, Brandon)

This two-storey residence on Lorne Avenue in Brandon was constructed in 1903 on a design by architect Walter Henderson Shillinglaw for businessman and politician Herbert Clement Graham. He and his family resided there until 1913, at which time it was sold to lawyer Archibald William Hunter Smith. He owned it until 1937. In February 2013, it became a municipally-designated historic site.
