Historic Sites of Manitoba: McElroy House (645 Thornhill Avenue, Morden)

The original owner of this house, Henry McElroy, was involved in real estate dealings in the Morden area for a number of years. During the summer of 1895, he contracted local mason W. H. Belcher to build this granite fieldstone house on a wooded lot near the banks of Dead Horse Creek. It became a municipally designated historic building in 1995.
