Historic Sites of Manitoba: Teeter House (218 Mclean Avenue, Selkirk)

This home in Selkirk was built in 1916 for Chancellor Teeter, pastor of Wesley Methodist Church. It was designed by his nephew, architect George Teeter, and remained in the Teeter family until 2022. Built in the bungalow style, which was then popular, with wood shingles over horizontal siding, this house included all of the conveniences available at the time. Reverend Teeter died in the house at age 92.
