Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cottingham House (Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

This two-storey brick residence in the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton, a municipally-designated historic site (1999), was built between 1900 and 1904 by local stonemason James McLachlan for William Cottingham, a prominent pioneer businessman in Boissevain (and father of William Randolph Cottingham). The house also had connections to the Archibald Smith family, and especially to Lorna Smith.
