Historic Sites of Manitoba: Wilson House / Klinic Building (545 Broadway, Winnipeg)

This elegant two-storey building on Broadway was designed in 1904 by local architect John Hamilton Gordon Russell and built for wholesale grocery merchant Robert Richey Wilson. Wilson and his family lived here until 1925 when they moved to a newly built home at 680 Wellington Crescent. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
