Historic Sites of Manitoba: Union Bank Building / Deloraine Times Building (109 North Railway Avenue, Deloraine, Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester)

The former Deloraine Times Building in Deloraine, in the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, was built as the Union Bank in September 1899, by Deloraine pioneers and businessmen A. P. and F. T. Stewart. The Royal Bank absorbed the Union Bank in 1925 and the building continued as a financial institution until 1940 when the structure was sold to William Bourns, owner of the Deloraine Times and Star. The newspaper was located in the former bank until the mid-1980s. The centrepiece of this Romanesque-inspired structure was the main floor façade with its brick arch and central keystone over the large window and entrance. Segmental arches, fanciful brick work above the second floor windows and a metal cornice with support brackets added a decorative touch. The building was designated in 1994 as a municipal historic site but was de-designated in late 2001 and demolished. As of 2010, its site remains vacant.
