Kelly House

Enlarge text:  smaller  |  larger

The area surrounding 88 Adelaide Street was once a lively neighbourhood of residential housing. Built by contractor Michael Kelly for himself in 1882, the house now stands alone amongst the warehouse buildings that supplanted the houses of Winnipeg’s earliest residential area.

When Winnipeg’s first land speculation boom occurred in 1880, the houses closest to the river were demolished to make way for the warehouses required to store and distribute goods.
