Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lake of the Woods Building (212 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg)

In 1901, the Lake of the Woods Milling Company had Winnipeg architect J. H. G. Russell design a new two-storey office building that was built for them by Edward Cass at this site on McDermot Avenue. The main floor had general and private offices, a sample room, and vault. A boardroom, three bedrooms, washrooms, and storage space were on the upper floor. Ten years later, the main floor was reorganized and additional office space was made on the second floor. The Winnipeg building is a municipally-designated historic site.
