Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Boniface Fire Hall No. 2 / Police Station (328 Tache Avenue, Winnipeg)

A parking lot on Tache Avenue in the Norwood area of Winnipeg was once the site of a fire hall. Approved by local voters in an August 1905 vote, the building was designed by local architect Victor W. Horwood. Tenders were called in mid-October 1905, with the lowest bid coming in over the budgeted sum, at $11,119. Design changes were made and tenders were re-issued in late February 1906. The brick and stone structure was rushed to completion, with work underway by June and completed by year’s end, at a cost of $10,000. Used initially by fire and police personnel, the police function was later phased out. Closed when a new St. Boniface Fire Hall No. 3 [now Winnipeg Fire Hall No. 3] opened at the corner of Des Meurons Street and Goulet Street, the building was demolished.
