Bryce House
Designation Date: July 13, 1993
Designation Authority: Emerson (Town)
Present Owner: privately owned

Bryce House, built at the end of an early boom period in Emerson, is a modest example of the picturesque Italianate style popularized through pattern books and introduced to Manitoba in the late nineteenth century. The two-storey dwelling, based on an asymmetrical L-shaped plan, retains a number of elements common to the style, including angled bay windows, segmental-arched openings, a verandah and decorative quoins. The house was built for John Bryce, a pioneer Emerson businessman and contractor, and is a familiar landmark in the community.
