Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Montreal House (324 Crescent Road W, Portage la Prairie)

This two-storey red brick house in Portage la Prairie was built in 1906 for the manager of the local Bank of Montreal branch. An example of Georgian architecture, it features overall symmetry in its steep hipped-roof, imposing facade, and prominent entrance with a pillared porch and balcony. The bank sold the building in 1972 and it is now a private residence.
