Historic Sites of Manitoba: Boissevain Land Titles Building (North Railway Street, Boissevain)

At one time, there were nine offices around Manitoba where land transactions could be completed: Winnipeg, Portage la Prairie, Brandon, Morden, Neepawa, Boissevain, Carman, Virden, and Dauphin. This two-storey brick building in Boissevain was designed by Winnipeg architect W. B. Lait and erected by the provincial government in 1903, at a cost of about $12,000. Its functions were eventually transferred to the Brandon office, and the building is now occupied by another provincial government department.
