Occupants | Photos & Maps | Sources

This two-storey brick and stone house in the Armstrong’s Point area of Winnipeg was designed by local architect William Wallace Blair and built in 1906 for merchant Thomas Ryan. It was renovated into a duplex in 1940 and a quadruplex in 1962, being used for a time as a nursing home, a residence for Inuit children from the North West Territories, and a home for a group of artists before reverting to a single-family residence.
