Historic Sites of Manitoba: Laughlin Block (650 Broadway, Cartwright, Municipality of Cartwright-Roblin)

In 1903, this two-storey brick building in Cartwright was built by banker Andrew Laughlin. Through the years, its main floor has housed a bank, lawyer’s office, Canadian customs office, municipal office, hardware store, and restaurant. The second floor, now closed, was used as a meeting hall by Odd Fellows and Rebekahs.
