Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lake View Farm (Roblin, Municipality of Roblin)

A two-storey stone farmhouse and barn overlooking East Goose Lake near Roblin in the Municipality of Roblin were constructed in 1908 by carpenter Jack Hartmier and mason Robert Grant for Victor and Annie Jakeman. Occupied by the Jakeman family until 1920, subsequent occupants were Thomas and Murza Dillin (1920-1948) and Harold and Vera Dillin (1948-?). The farmhouse underwent extensive interior renovations in early 2019.
