Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bethune Block (405 Main Street, Manitou)

This two-storey brick building in the Town of Manitou was constructed in 1888 for businessman Harry Bowler, and its main floor has been used for an implement dealership, a post office, a hardware store, and a flower shop. On the second floor was a meeting hall that has since been renovated into residential space.
