Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brandon City Hall (818 Princess Avenue, Brandon)

Planning for the Brandon City Hall began in 1890. A site on Princess Avenue between Eighth and Ninth Streets was selected and, after a series of delay, a two-storey building was designed by local architect W. R. Marshall and constructed by local contractor Fred T. Cope. It opened in February 1892. Replaced by a new building in 1971, the old hall was demolished in March 1971.
