Historic Sites of Manitoba: Merchants Bank Building / Russell Banner Building (310 Main Street, Russell, Municipality of Russell-Binscarth)

This two-storey brick building in downtown Russell originally housed the local branch of the Merchants Bank. Built in 1915, it replaced an earlier bank building that dated from 1906. For more than 50 years, it was home to the local newspaper, the Russell Banner, until it moved out in 2003.
