Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brown House (714 Lorne Avenue, Brandon)

This two-storey residence on Lorne Avenue in Brandon was built in 1899, possibly for hardware merchant John Brown. He lived here until around 1908 when he moved to Toronto. Subsequent occupants have included wholesale grocer Frank W. Smith of the firm Smith and Burton (c1908 to c1918), W. H. Davidson (c1918 to 1925), and pharmacist Patrick Angus Kennedy (1925 to 1950).
