Manitoba Municipal Heritage Site No. 1

 

Myers House
(The Castle)
149-2nd Avenue SW
Minnedosa

Myer's House

Designation Date: August 18, 1986
Designation Authority: Minnedosa (Town)
Present Owner: privately owned

The Myers House is one of the most substantial and refined Queen Anne Revival-style dwellings found in modestly sized communities in southwestern Manitoba. To create interest and a sense of elegance, its design relies on a balanced massing of elements and various shapes, angles and building materials, rather than an abundance of ornamentation. The home also is noted for its large well-planned site and rich interior. Built for Judge Robert Hill Myers and his family, the structure is an important feature of the historic development of Minnedosa and a landmark in the community.
