Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Club (194 Broadway, Winnipeg)

The Manitoba Club was founded on 16 July 1874 at a meeting held at the St. James restaurant in Winnipeg. Attending the meeting were several prominent businessman: A. G. B. Bannatyne, Henry T. Champion, W. Gouin, Gilbert McMicken, J. A. N. Provencher, C. W. Radiger, Joseph Royal, W. Osborne Smith, Major Taschereau, and W. B. Taylor. The first of its kind in western Canada, the Club operated a clubhouse on Garry Street then moved to the present two-storey brick clubhouse on Broadway, designed by local architect S. Frank Peters, in 1904. The building was opened officially on 10 October 1905.
