Historic Sites of Manitoba: McKenzie House (RM of Oakview)

In 1871, Kenneth McKenzie arrived in the Minnedosa area from Gloucester, Ontario. His wife and two children joined him in 1879 and for several years they lived in a small log house. That building was replaced by this house, built for the McKenzies in 1891-92 by stone mason T. D. Taylor of Minnedosa, using fieldstone that had been collected as they cleared their land. Mackenzie was active in local politics, serving as a councillor for the Rural Municipality of Saskatchewan (now part of the Rural Municipality of Oakview) from its formation in 1887 until 1900.

The building is a municipally designated historic site.
