The Beveridge Building is a prominent two-story building situated on 2nd Ave in Medicine Hat’s historic downtown core. Built in 1911, the building is representative of a period of economic growth in the city prior to the First World War. It is characterized by its classic detailing, size and facade.
Named after longtime Medicine Hat businessman and developer, James Beveridge. He constructed the Beveridge Building to house J. C. Beveridge’s Ltd. Furniture and Men’s Furnishing, as well as a handful of real estate offices. The unique open floor plan of the building set it apart from others at the time. The building’s use shifted in 1986 when the local Salvation Army moved their Family Thrift Store in, using the space until 2009. Following that the business has been owned by a range of businesses and groups. Today, the Beveridge is home to two restaurants, The 1911 Lounge and The Mezz, as well as Heritage Events, an event hosting company.
