Historic Sites of Manitoba: Harris House (26 Edmonton Street, Winnipeg)

This 2½-storey brick home was designed in 1902 by C. C. Chisholm and built by William Brydon and F. Powell for $6,500. Its first resident was James W. Harris and his wife Susan. It was slightly renovated through the years until being converted into office space in 1977 by William Hanuschak and Associates Limited. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
