Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cedar Springs Cottage (50 Crescent Boulevard, Dunnottar)

This cottage at Dunnottar was built according to plans provided by the North American Lumber and Supply Company to insurance executive Homer Smiley Robinson. Named “Cedar Springs,” the building is unusual for its cedar log siding and interior board-and-batten panelling. It has a masonry fieldstone fireplace with a matching broad chimney. The siding, windows, and floors are original. All rooms are open to varnished cathedral ceilings.
