William E. Milner House

Enlarge text:  smaller  |  larger

William Edwin Milner was the western manager of the Maple Leaf Flour Mills Company. He had relocated his family to Winnipeg and chose the new middle-class subdivision on Balmoral Street for his family to settle.

The property at 51 Balmoral was originally part of land that was granted to James Spence from the Hudson Bay Company. The acreage which covered Spence Street and the south side of Broadway Avenue, was subdivided in 1903. The $8,000 structure was built among several other large, single-family dwellings in the area.
