Historic Sites of Manitoba: Telephone Repeater Station (RM of Morris)

This small, one-storey brick building along Manitoba Highway #330 in the Rural Municipality of Morris was designed by architect Robert Bryan Ross and constructed around 1952 to house “J” Carrier Repeaters, a component of the Trans-Canada Telecommunications System. During the 1950s, the equipment inside the building was owned and operated by the Manitoba Telephone System. Its electrical service has been disconnected and the building is presently used for storage.
