In the 1880s and 1890s Manitoba was introduced to the terrace house, an innovative facility that combined several addresses in what would appear to be a very large house. A hundred years later most of these buildings are gone, but Brandon can boast of the best remaining collection in the province. Lorne Terrace is one of the finest. Built in 1892 by Bell Brothers Construction, it is typical of the type. Originally a four-unit terrace, its broad façade was a handsome assemblage of gabled bays, dormers and a variety of window groupings, all enriched with exquisite brick details.
