Historic Sites of Manitoba: Moyse House (838 Wolseley Avenue, Winnipeg)

Designed by architect Pall Melsted “Paul” Clemens, this house was erected in 1913 for John Moyse, who owned a stable and livery business on William Avenue near Market Square. In 1923, the house was purchased by grain broker Wilfred Campbell who sold it, five years later, to grain broker George Duncan Cameron. After the Cameron family vacated the house, it had several owners until being split into three suites in the late 1950s. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
