This two-storey brick and stone building on Adele Avenue (formerly a portion of Yarwood Avenue) in the Daniel McIntyre area of Winnipeg, was designed by local architect Charles Saunders Bridgman and built in 1922. It was formerly the St. Edward's Roman Catholic Convent. After being vacated by the church, it was used as a group home for Indigenous children.
