Historic Sites of Manitoba: Gibbs House (212 McLean Avenue, Selkirk)

This residence on McLean Avenue in Selkirk was built in 1921 by Roy Hooker for pharmacist Fred Gibbs. Although the verandah is characteristic of the Queen Anne style, it is more similar to Cottage style with its wood frame construction and horizontal wood siding and cedar shingles on the walls.
