Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lyall House (830 Wolseley Avenue, Winnipeg)

Designed by Alfred Gent, this two-storey brick house was built in 1909 for business executive Hugh Buxton Lyall, who sold it in 1916 to Henry Finesilver. It was owned between 1923 and 1929 by real estate agent John Burgoyne, whose wife was the daughter of Maxime Goulet. For several years in the 1940s and 1950s, the house served as the manse for the rectors of Holy Trinity Church. It was later subdivided into apartments.
