Historic Sites of Manitoba: MacKinnon House (114 Balmoral Street, Winnipeg)

This two-storey brick house on Balmoral Street in Winnipeg was designed by architect Victor W. Horwood and built in 1907 by the Northern Construction Company for cleric Clarence MacKinnon of Westminster Presbyterian Church. He sold it in 1910 to architect Daniel Smith who lived here until his death in 1913. The Smith family continued to own the house until the 1940s although they rented to a series of occupants starting in the 1920s. In its later life, it has alternated between a single-family dwelling and a boarding house.
