Historic Sites of Manitoba: McKenzie House (436 Victoria Avenue, Brandon)

The McKenzie House on Victoria Avenue in Brandon, a municipally designated historic building, was constructed around 1901 for wine and spirits merchant William Ferguson but was occupied from about 1920 by Dr. Albert E. McKenzie, founder and owner of the A. E. McKenzie Seed Company Limited. Established in 1897, it became Western Canada’s largest seed company.
