Historic Sites of Manitoba: McConnell House (577 Stephen Street, Morden)

This commanding Queen Anne-style house was built in 1899 for Dr. B. J. McConnell, Morden’s first medical practitioner. He came to Manitoba with his wife in 1884. At first they lived in a modest wood frame house but, in 1899, decided a bigger, more ambitious home was needed. Work was completed in October of that year. The stonework was carried out by the Morden firm of Bryden and Richardson. It became a municipally designated historic building in 1989.
