Historic Sites of Manitoba: Falls House (36 Roslyn Road, Winnipeg)

In 1907, businessman J. C. Falls built this solid brick house at the southwest corner of Roslyn Road and Bryce Street, based on a design by architects L. A. Wardell and D. W. F. Nichols. After Falls died in 1924, his family rented the building to various occupants before converting it to a boarding house in the late 1930s. In 1943, it was sold to widow Mary J. Blois. In the early 1950s, Marie E. Martin operated the St. Michael’s Nursing Home in it into the 1970s. Most recently, the structure has been used for various businesses. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
