Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sharpe House (56 Balmoral Street, Winnipeg)

The building at 56 Balmoral Street was originally 26 Balmoral Place (the street’s name changed in the late 1950s) when it was constructed in 1906, by contractor D. J. Ross, at a cost of $6,500. Its first occupant was businessman Henry E. Sharpe. Subsequent owners included Angus D. Robertson of the Robertson-Adams Lumber Company (to the late 1910s), Dr. H. J. Meikley (to 1922), and Dr. William Leggette (to 1938). The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
