Manitoba Municipal Heritage Site No. 251


Scott House
NE 13-16-14W, Eden area

Scott House

Designation Date: July 8, 2003
Designation Authority: R.M. of Lansdowne
Present Owner: privately owned

Constructed by Henry Scott and continuously owned by four generations of family members, this Manitoba Centennial Farm (an honour bestowed by the Manitoba Historical Society) is a landmark in the Eden area. The Scott House is an example of an architectural alternative to the popular four-square plan used to build large rural dwellings in southwestern Manitoba in the early 1900s. In contrast to the blocky and formal four-square, the L-shaped plan of the Scott House has a more informal presence.
