Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stuart House (478 Eveline Street, Selkirk)

This two-storey brick home was built in 1904 by James Stuart, first Manager of the Selkirk Electric Light Company, for his son Robert Stuart, the company’s first engineer. The red brick for the house was manufactured at James Stuart’s brick plant near La Riviere, Manitoba. The house’s exterior was restored by the City of Selkirk with assistance of the Manitoba provincial government. It received municipal heritage designation in 1997.
