Historic Sites of Manitoba: Peterson House (662 Eleventh Street, Brandon)

This 1½-storey brick residence on Eleventh Street in Brandon was constructed in 1883 for lawyer Ancus Martins Peterson (1851-1916). Subsequent occupants included businessman James Spence Gibson (1890-1892), contractor Alexander Allen (1892-1917), cleric Claude D. Gemmill (1935-1939), and cleric Ivor Arthur Norris (1939-1950).
