Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hettle House (653 Stephen Street, Boissevain, Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

This two-storey house in Boissevain is known for its architecture and John Hettle, a noted implement dealer and farmer and municipal councillor and Liberal MLA. The house is of the Queen Anne style that was popular in the first decade of the 20th century. Around 1910, the Hettle family moved into this house with a varied floor plan (possible because of its construction of wood frame), large and varied window openings, a wrap-around porch delicately detailed in wood, all rendered in golds and whites.
