Buztynski House

Designation Date:  October 13, 2005
Designation Authority:  R.M. of Grahamdale
Present Owner:  Moosehorn Heritage Museum Inc.

Built in the early 1900s, the log Buztynski House, a simple rectangular structure with a gable roof, is a good example of an early homestead in Manitoba. Constructed almost entirely with readily available materials, the dwelling, through its distinctive proportions, limited fenestration and hand-hewn logs with neat dovetail corners, exhibits unpretentious material qualities and the skill and resourcefulness of early twentieth-century pioneers. Built and lived in by the Andrew Nickel family on a farm approximately seven kilometres northwest of Moosehorn, the structure also housed the families of Fred Buztynski and his son Dave for over four decades. It now stands on Moosehorn’s main street, restored for museum use by area residents.
