Historic Sites of Manitoba: Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce Building / Elgin and District Museum (Elgin, Municipality of Grassland)

Built in 1904, this bank building in the village of Elgin in the Municipality of Grassland was originally two storeys high, providing accommodation for the bank manager on its second floor, which was removed in the 1950s. The bank closed in 1995 and now serves as the Elgin and District Historical Museum. It is open on weekends and holidays from July to September. Visits at other times can be arranged by appointment.
