Located in Assiniboine Park, the current structure opened in May 1930, replacing a similar building that had burned to the ground a year earlier. It had been designed by architect Cyril Chivers. In 1997, the building was completely renovated into a restaurant and art gallery for three internationally recognized Manitoba artists – Ivan Eyre, Clarence Tillenius and Walter J. Phillips. It is now a municipally-designated historic site.
