This two-storey stone house in the Crescentwood area of Winnipeg was designed by Montreal architects George A. Ross and David H. MacFarlane, and built between 1912 and 1914 for Hodgson W. Hutchinson. In 1996, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg purchased the building and added a sanctuary on the east side.
