This two-storey brick building on Hamilton Street in Neepawa was constructed in 1898 for veterinarian George Albert McKenzie (1861-1909). He used the first floor as a horse hospital and the second floor as a residence for his family. It is presently (2020) used as a physiotherapy and wellness centre.
