Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hample Building (271 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg)

The three-storey Hample Building on Portage Avenue was designed by local architect John D. Atchison for entrepreneur Martha Jane Richards Hample. Its original floor designs have been extensively altered through the years. Between 2011 and 2017, additional stories were added to the building and it was converted to residential apartments. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
