Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scott Block / Old Post Office (Nelson Street West, Virden)

The former post office building in Virden was completed by local contractor W. T. Manser in 1914, using dark red brick from the Alsip Brick and Tile Company of Winnipeg and limestone trim from the quarry at Garson. In addition to postal business, the building also housed the RCMP office for a time. It has since been renovated as a multi-resident apartment block.
