MTS Building & Post Office - 1948

Winkler Telephone Office - Moved in 2001

100 0650A new telephone office was opened by MTS on April 1, 1948 at 650 Mountain Avenue in Winkler.  It was used for 16 years.

By 1965 though, it was time for construction again and the building was closed to make way for a new electronic office on the corner of Mountain and 3rd Street.  After it's use as a telephone office, the building became known as "The Lighthouse", a popular youth centre in Winkler.

Note the telephone booth now located on the south wall of the building; this was originally located in the southeast corner of the building when in use. 

The MTS building has been refurbished by the MTS volunteers in 2008 to mark their 100th anniversary. 

"MTS celebrated 100 years of History in 2008!"
