Stodders House
Designation Date: June 12, 1990
Designation Authority: Morden (Town)
Present Owner: privately owned

The Stodders House, a magnificent execution of a Queen Anne Revival-style dwelling, is amongst the finest examples of this kind of architecture within Manitoba. Its extensive and elaborate ensemble of features, as well as its prominent location within Morden, distinguishes it from its architectural peers. The hexagonal corner tower with its distinctive beehive roof, the detailed woodwork, the variety of materials and picturesque roofline all combine to form a superior composition. The house was constructed for David Stodders, a pioneer grain merchant in Morden. His family occupied the site for about a decade, after which time it changed ownership frequently until ca. 1958-88 when it was associated with the Mary Currie family and became known locally as the Currie House.
