Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scott House (205 Eaton, Selkirk)

This house was built in Selkirk in 1898 by agent and police magistrate Robert Scott. A typical side-hall house with a slant-roofed kitchen, it boasts a distinctive tower with a pyramidal roof and an enclosed verandah. The Robertson family owned the house from 1921 to 1990 when it was sold and became a Tea House.
