Heritage Resources

Maybank was part of the Rural Municipality of Fort Garry (incorporated in 1912) when it became part of the City of Winnipeg which came into legal existence on January 1, 1972.

Maybank began to develop after World War I, much of the housing stock in the neighbourhood dates to either the 1920s-1940s period or the 1950s and 1960s. The west side of Pembina Highway, the area's premier commercial thoroughfare, forms the neighbourhood's eastern boundary. South Gate Village Shopping Centre and the Pembina Curling Club are two of the area's large facilities. The name of the neighbourhood honours H. Ralph Maybank (1890-1965) Winnipeg alderman, M.L.A. and M.P. and Manitoba Court of King's Bench judge (1951-1965). [1]
