Occupants | Photos & Maps | Sources

This two-storey residence on Middle Gate in the Armstrong’s Point area of Winnipeg was designed by local architect James Hamilton Rowan and constructed in 1882 by Montreal merchant William Miller Ramsay as a speculative project. He rented it for several years until he ran into financial difficulty. In 1894, the house was bought by Daniel J. McIntyre and, three years later, he added plumbing and expanded it with a wing on its south side designed by John Hamilton Gordon Russell. The screened porch was added in 1994.
