Historic Sites of Manitoba: Colcleugh House (102 Pacific Avenue, Selkirk)

This residence was constructed in 1872 for F. W. Colcleugh, one of Selkirk’s pioneer residents and one of its most prominent civic-minded citizens. Colcleugh, a pharmacist, enjoyed many distinctions, including being the first Fire Chief and an early mayor of Selkirk. He also served several terms as a member of the Manitoba Legislature. One of Selkirk’s oldest surviving buildings, the former Colcleugh House is an example of the kind of houses favoured during the 1870s and 1880s.
