Historic Sites of Manitoba: Trader’s Bank Building (389 Eveline Street, Selkirk)

The Trader’s Bank was incorporated by an Act of Parliament in 1885 and began moving operations west by the turn of the century. It came to Selkirk with the completion of this three-storey brick building in 1907. However, its residency was short-lived, as it was replaced by the Dominion Bank in 1909. The truncated corner of the building, its main defining feature, was intended to attract customers from the street. The building is now a municipally designated historic site.
