Historic Sites of Manitoba: Raleigh Apartments (340 Vaughan Street, Winnipeg)

In early 1931, the Smith Agency Limited, a local insurance service that had become an experienced property manager, proceeded with construction of the 37-unit Raleigh Apartments on Vaughan Street between Webb Place and Ellice Avenue. The three-storey structure was designed by James W. Hawker. Smith Agency retained title to the building until the mid-1980s when it was expropriated by the government and turned over to the North Portage Development Corporation. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
