Historic Sites of Manitoba: White Block / Macdonald Block (272 Hamilton Street, Neepawa)

This two-storey brick building on Hamilton Street in Neepawa was constructed in 1899 for dentist Frederick E. White (1865-?). The lower level was used for his dental practice with a residential apartment on the upper level. In 1908, George Harvey Macdonald (1877-1952) joined the practice and eventually took it over. Subsequent occupants included a realty office and the Neepawa Banner. It has been occupied by a realty company since 1999.
