Historic Sites of Manitoba: Penrose House (444 Logan Avenue, Winnipeg)

In 1894, local architect James McDiarmid designed and built this 2½-storey house at 232 Bell Avenue in the Fort Rouge neighborhood of Winnipeg. He rented it to a variety of tenants until selling it sometime before 1904. In 1906, it was purchased by photographer James Penrose who lived in it until his death in 1918. Penrose’s family continued to reside in the house until 1925. After attempts in early 1987 to save it from demolition, the house was purchased by the Winnipeg Housing Rehabilitation Corporation and moved to its present location at 444 Logan Avenue, and renovated as low-income housing. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
