The Shillinglaw House on Russell Street, constructed in 1882 by James Shillinglaw (1832-1910, father of local architect and engineer Walter Henderson Shillinglaw) was the first residence in Brandon’s East End and is now one of only two pre-1900 houses remaining in the neighbourhood. It is a municipally designated heritage building (2003).
