Historic Sites of Manitoba: Northern Mail Building (114 Third Street West, The Pas)

This two-storey building on Third Street West in The Pas, dating from 1928-1929, was the home of The Pas Northern Mail, the community’s primary newspaper from 1928 to 1964. It is one of the few substantial commercial buildings extant from the early period of rapid growth in The Pas, which saw the town develop into an important centre of distribution for the North.
