Historic Sites of Manitoba: Christie House (404 Thirteenth Street, Brandon)

One of Brandon’s most impressive homes, this 2½-storey structure was built in 1905 for Ernest Lisle Christie, founder of the stationary and school supply business that still bears his name. Christie and his family lived here until 1934, and the house was occupied by other family members until 1966. The house was designed by Brandon architect William Alexander Elliott and was constructed by the local firm of G. C. Taylor. It is a municipally-designated historic site (1989).
