Historic Sites of Manitoba: Nicholson House (Mill Road, Boissevain, Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

Built in 1891, the Nicholson House is one of Boissevain’s oldest buildings. Commissioned by the John Nicholson family, the house is an impressive example of late 19th-century residential design. It exhibits some distinctive Gothic Revival qualities: the steep roof and numerous dormers and fine wooden details. The interior is mostly intact, with original woodwork on the stairs and doors, wide baseboards, high ceilings and original registers. The house has had the addition of stucco over its original exterior wall sheathing.
