About the Building


Originally known as the MacMillan Department Store, the structure was designed by Winnipeg architect William Fingland and built in 1912 by Saskatoon's future mayor, Frank R. MacMillan. In 1927, the T. Eaton Company purchased the business, but not the building, as it was ready to open its own store directly across the street. MacMillan's store was the single largest department store in the city at that time. After selling the business to Eaton's, MacMillan extensively remodeled his building, inside and out, to convert it to office space, and renamed it the Avenue Building.
