Historic Sites of Manitoba: Canadian Bank of Commerce Building (204 Nelson Street, Virden)

In 1919, this one-storey brick and stone building on Nelson Street in Virden was built as a two-storey branch of the Canadian Bank of Commerce. An extension on Nelson Street was added in 1945 and a rearward addition was made in 1955. It became the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in 1961, following the bank's merger with the Imperial Bank of Canada. The second floor was removed during major renovations in 1980.
