1901 – J.B. Somerset School, Winnipeg

Architect: J.B. Mitchell


Another fine school design by J.B. Mitchell, who must surely be one of the most demolished Winnipeg architects. An impressive building of three storeys in brick brick with an entry tower and prominent matching chimneys above large pediment gables. While perhaps not as polished as some of his later designs, it does link the earlier buildings of Wheeler with Mitchell’s later work. Somerset School was closed by the Winnipeg School Board in June 1972. Demolished 2005.
