Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hamiota Telephone Exchange Building (59 Fourth Avenue, Hamiota, Municipality of Hamiota)

A small one-storey building on Fourth Avenue in Hamiota was designed by Winnipeg architect Alexander D. Melville and built in 1936 to house local circuitry for the Manitoba Telephone System. It was used by the company until 30 May 1968 when a new building was opened at the corner of Third Street and Oak Avenue. This building was demolished in 2005 and the site is now unoccupied.
