Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scott Apartments / Maryland Apartments (426 Maryland Street, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick and stone apartment block on Maryland Street in Winnipeg was designed by local architect Edgar Prain and constructed in 1912. Its name was changed to Maryland Apartments around 1919. Damaged by fire in January 2019, the building was boarded up and awaiting restoration when another fire occurred on 8 January 2020. The building was demolished later that month.
