Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brandon Central Fire Hall (637 Princess Avenue, Brandon)

The 2½-storey Central Fire Station, designed by architect W. A. Elliott and constructed in 1911, is one of Brandon’s finest buildings. A previous fire hall stood here between 1882 and 1893. A 4,400-pound bell in the tower was removed in 1971 to reduce the stress on the structure. A plaque describing the history of the building was erected here by the Brandon Municipal Heritage Committee. The building has been renovated into a restaurant.
