Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Vital Museum / St. Vital Fire Hall (600 St. Mary’s Road, Winnipeg)

The St. Mary’s Road fire hall, designed by architect brothers Alexander D. Melville and William N. Melville and constructed in 1914 at 600 St. Mary’s Road, is similar to those built in Winnipeg between 1904 and 1914, with red brick, limestone accents, and dormer windows. In the early years, fireman would plant flower boxes under the multi-paned windows—Chief H. E. Rose was also President of the St. Vital Agricultural Society. With growth in the community, the Fire Department moved from this original building to two better-located modern structures. The building now serves as the St. Vital Museum and an ambulance station. A St. Vital Historical Society plaque is situated in front of the building, which is a municipally-designated historic site.
