Historic Sites of Manitoba: Teulon Telephone Exchange Building (52 Main Street, Teulon)

This small, one-storey building on Main Street in Teulon was designed by Winnipeg architect Alexander D. Melville and built in 1938 to house local circuitry for the Manitoba Telephone System. It was used by the company until 1970 when a new building was constructed on Second Avenue Southeast.
