Historic Sites of Manitoba: Belgian Club Building (407 Provencher Boulevard, Winnipeg)

Members of Le Club Belge first met in a Winnipeg boarding house. By early 1906, they had moved to the Montagne Block in St. Boniface. Two years later, they purchased land on the north side of Provencher Boulevard and built on it a one-storey brick clubhouse. Built in part with a loan from the local McDonagh and Shea brewery, a second storey was added in 1911. Three years later, a two-storey extension was added on the east side. Inside is a two-lane bowling alley, lounges, bars, and office space. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
