Historic Sites of Manitoba: Graham House (137 Scott Street, Winnipeg)

This 2½-storey frame home in Fort Rouge was designed by architect William Barnes Lait and constructed in 1902 for lumberman John Campbell Graham. He lived there until about 1923 then moved into his business block where he stayed until 1930, keeping the house as a rental property. The building was used as a boarding house beginning in 1945. It was converted to office space in 1980. Most recently, it is a Christian Science Church and Reading Room. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
