Historic Sites of Manitoba: Grain Exchange Building (167 Lombard Avenue, Winnipeg)

Organized in 1887 as the Winnipeg Grain and Produce Exchange, first situated in the basement of the Winnipeg City Hall and later in a building on Princess Street, the Winnipeg Grain Exchange quickly outgrew its facilities. Between 1906 and 1908, a new seven-storey office building, designed by the Toronto architectural firm of Darling and Pearson, was constructed by Kelly Brothers and Mitchell at the northeast corner of Lombard Street and Rorie Avenue, in downtown Winnipeg. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
