Historic Sites of Manitoba: Argue House (17 Luxton Avenue, Winnipeg)

This two-storey wood frame residence on Luxton Avenue in Winnipeg was built in 1909 for financial agent Mural Willis Argue. He did not live in the house, instead renting it until 1912 when the house was sold to stable worker George Hartley and his wife Esther A. Hartley. They owned and occupied it from 1912 to the late 1920s. It was owned by John Ketter from 1930 into the 1950s.
