Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brownlee House (309 Memorial Avenue North, Russell)

Construction of this residence in the Town of Russell was begun by a local lawyer who ran out of money before it was completed. It was then owned by physician Thomas I. Brownlee, who moved to Russell in 1922 after his graduation from the Manitoba Medical College, and served the medical needs of the community for decades.
