This two-storey house in the Armstrong’s Point area of Winnipeg was built in 1911 for dentist Frank W. Glasgow. The Craftsman-style design was adapted by architect Cyril W. U. Chivers from plans that Glasgow brought from California. The home is one of few in the neighbourhood to retains its original large stone verandah, likely because the house is supported by steel I-beams that continue under the floor of the front porch.
