Historic Sites of Manitoba: Minnedosa Court House (70 Third Avenue SW, Minnedosa)

In 1908, the Town of Minnedosa became the headquarters of the North-West Judicial District and, over the next two years, an impressive two-storey brick and stone building was erected at the corner of First Street and Third Avenue. Designed by provincial architect Samuel Hooper and constructed by Charles Jeffrey of Portage la Prairie, it housed a jail, courtrooms, and clerk’s office.
