Historic Sites of Manitoba: Edmonton Duplex (368-370 Edmonton Street, Winnipeg)

Constructed in 1901 on a design by architect Johann Schwab, this duplex opposite Central Park is one of the few residential buildings left in downtown Winnipeg. It was built at a cost of $8,000 for Martin Hoover and Alfred Town, who co-owned the Hoover and Town Clothing Store on Main Street. By 1908, the partnership had dissolved and the duplex was sold. The interior has been extensively renovated but the exterior is largely intact. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
