Historic Sites of Manitoba: West House (323 Eveline Street, Selkirk)

This Queen Anne-style residence on Eveline Street in Selkirk was built in 1888 by Robert Moncrieff and Frank Wright for Charles Henry West. The 1½-storey structure, with horizontal wood siding on a wood frame, sits on a stone foundation. A bay window protrudes into the open verandah, which is supported by columns and the walls are trimmed with bargeboard and shingles. Although the interior has been altered, and a door and window in the front have been removed, it still has the original woodwork, staircase, and wood flooring.
