Originally constructed in 1925 by the Bank of Toronto, this building served as a bank until 1942, when the town of Transcona purchased it for municipal offices. Used by Health and Welfare, Parks & Recreation and for council meetings until Unicity was formed in 1972, at which time it was vacated. In 1981 the building reopened as the home for the Transcona Historical Museum now known as the Transcona Museum. Today the museum houses over 45,000 artifacts pertaining to the history of Transcona and is the one of two Heritage buildings in the community.
