Historic Sites of Manitoba: Taylor House (102 First Street SW, Portage la Prairie)

This impressive house was built in 1913 at 102 First Street Southwest in Portage la Prairie for one of Portage la Prairie’s most influential early citizens, Fawcett Gowler Taylor, a crown prosecutor, alderman and mayor, leader of Manitoba’s Conservative Party (1922-33) and a superior court judge. Designed by Winnipeg architect H. G. Holman, many of the original interior finishes and details from the Taylor family’s occupation are still apparent. The building is a municipally designated historic site.
