The Woodbine Hotel in Winnipeg began business in 1878 as Dufferin Hall, a “diminutive hostel 22 feet wide and approximately twice as long ... originally a wood frame structure.” The building is a municipally-designated historic site and, in 2019, the owners received a Preservation Award from Heritage Winnipeg.
