Historic Sites of Manitoba: Women’s Tribute Memorial Lodge (200 Woodlawn Street, Winnipeg)

Located at the northwest corner of Portage Avenue and Woodlawn Street in Winnipeg, this two-storey brick and Tyndall stone building was designed by the architectural firm of Northwood and Chivers and built by the Claydon Construction Company at a cost of about $32,000 using funds raised by Manitoba women. The main floor originally contained a billiard hall, club rooms, office space, and kitchen/washroom facilities while the second floor held an auditorium. The Women’s Tribute Memorial Lodge was intended as a lasting tribute to the province’s veterans of the First World War.

A commemorative plaque was erected at the site in 2006 by the Manitoba Heritage Council. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
