Historic Sites of Manitoba: Alexander Post Office (Alexander, RM of Whitehead)

The Alexander Post Office, in the village of Alexander in the Rural Municipality of Whitehead, is one of the oldest privately owned post offices in continuous use in Manitoba. Built as a small hotel, residence and store, with the central portion occupied by the post office in 1892, the structure was built by Alexander’s first postmaster, James Frederick Walker, whose family provided postal services to the village until 1949. It is now a municipally-designated historic site.
