Historic Sites of Manitoba: Freeman House / Springhill Store (211 Hamilton Street, Neepawa)

This wood frame house on Hamilton Street in Neepawa was built in 1924 by the Freeman Family in the Springhill school district, serving as a store with living quarters at the back. In 1935, the store was closed and it was converted to a house exclusively. In the early 1940s, the home was purchased by Charlie Martin of Neepawa and moved to its present location.

The home is listed as historically significant by the Town of Neepawa and the Neepawa Heritage Committee.
