Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hudson House (RM of Springfield)

Edward Hudson (1839-1912) came to Manitoba in 1874 and took up a homestead in the Plympton district of the Rural Municipality of Springfield. After a temporary return to Ontario, he built a log house in 1878. It was replaced by the present two-storey structure, featuring a distinctive Mansard roof, in 1893. The building is still occupied by his descendants.
