This building at 361 Main Street in the Town of Stonewall is Manitoba’s foremost example of Prairie Style architecture and only known surviving example of Prairie Style institutional architecture in Manitoba. It was designed by Francis Conroy Sullivan (1882-1929), one of Canada’s pioneer practitioners of this style. The Dominion Department of Public Works built the building during 1914-15 using local limestone. It served as a post office until 1978.
