Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fire Hall No. 13 (410 Cathedral Avenue, Winnipeg)

Located at the southeast corner of Powers Street and Cathedral Avenue in Winnipeg, the Fire Hall No. 13 was designed by local architects Alexander D. Melville and William N. Melville, and constructed in 1911 by the Sutherland Construction Company at a cost of about $10,000. The hall opened in late January 1912.

In 1963, the building was re-purposed as a seasonal goodwill depot, and offered for sale in 1965. It has since been converted into a private residence. The designation of Fire Hall No. 13 would later be re-used with the opening of a new station at 799 Lilac Street in 1980.
