Historic Sites of Manitoba: Wilson House (106 Handsart Boulevard, Winnipeg)

The original owner of this house in Winnipeg, Samuel L. Wilson, was retired when he moved here in 1938 but he may have been a Director of the T. Eaton Company. It was sold in 1958 to Jack Hopwood, an agent for Great West Life Assurance Company. Moody and Moore, the architects of this home, did most of their work in Winnipeg after the Second World War, including St. Andrew’s River Heights Church. Design details include corbelled brick under the cornice, and an attractive limestone door surround.
