Historic Sites of Manitoba: Tees and Persse Building (315 William Avenue, Winnipeg)

This six-storey brick building in Winnipeg’s Exchange District was designed by local architect James H. Cadham and built between 1905 and 1906 for businessman James Tees and John Persse. It was later integrated into the Princess Street Campus of Red River College. In 2003, the municipally-designated historic building received a Conservation Award from Heritage Winnipeg.
