Ontario Gothic House

Designation Date: October 14, 2014
Designation Authority: Elton (R.M.)
Present Owner: Privately Owned

The Ontario Gothic House is a fine example of modest vernacular domestic architecture in stone, and a reminder of the kind of sturdy, attractive house that Establishment-era farmers could sometimes, with good luck and hard work, manage to build. With its simple form, central roof gable and walls built up of large granite boulders, the house is nearly a perfect example of a once-common house type found on many western Manitoba farms – the Ontario Gothic house.
