Historic Sites of Manitoba: Murphy House (205 Dromore Avenue, Winnipeg)

This two-storey brick residence on Dromore Avenue in the Crescentwood neighbourhood of Winnipeg was constructed in 1912. It was donated in 1940 by its owner, William Arthur Murphy, to the Royal Canadian Air Force in memory of his son, Gerald, who was killed on active service that year. A stone monument on the front grounds was unveiled in 1997.
