Historic Sites of Manitoba: Roblin Hotel (115-117 Adelaide Street, Winnipeg)

In 1882, the three-storey Roblin Hotel (also known as Roblin House) was built along the east side of Adelaide Street in Winnipeg. It was demolished during the summer of 1993 by which time its lustre had long-since gone. A memoir by a member of the Roy family, who operated it for many years, was published in 2014.
