Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kaye House (Boundary Street, Melita)

A house at this site in Melita was built in 1908 but it did not gain wide familiarity until 1940 when it became the home of local physician Henry Andrew “Hank” Kaye (1917-2002) and his family. After they moved out 1990, it underwent a major renovation into a tea house and bed and breakfast operation. The building was designated in 1998 as a municipally-designated historic site.
