Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ludlow Court (141 River Avenue, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick apartment block on River Avenue in Winnipeg, measuring 52 feet by 56 feet, was designed by local architect Norman McNab Moffat and constructed in 1906 by contractor A. B. Anderson for lumber dealer James Harkness Ludlow at a cost of about $22,000. The building contained nine apartments. The Ludlow Court was an early example of a luxury block, built in Winnipeg’s rapidly growing Fort Rouge area. The Ludlow family occupied one of the ground-floor suites until the 1970s. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
