Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fraser House (160 Newton Avenue, Winnipeg)

Built of logs in 1841 as the home for John Fraser, the structure became a municipally-designated historic site in April 1982. Responding to safety complaints from neighbors over the state of the building, its owner deconstructed the structure around 1989 and moved portions to a site in the Rural Municipality of Springfield where, as of 2012, it is still standing.
