Historic Sites of Manitoba: Malcolm Block (209-213 Main Street North, Dauphin)

This three-storey brick building along Main Street in Dauphin was constructed in 1906 by local farmer and businessman Andrew Malcolm (1842-1920) and his son Thomas Malcolm. A fire in January 1913 destroyed much of the building’s interior, with the facade of only the top two floors surviving.
