Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sprague House / Cadurcis House (Minnedosa)

This house in the Town of Minnedosa was built around 1910 by American settler W. Sprague. In 1917, it was bought by the Dickie family, who installed plumbing and electrical services in it. The building was then sold in 1945 to Laurie and Jenney Thiery. Originally situated about 20 kilometers west of Minnedosa, and known locally as Cadurcis house for the local school district, it was moved to the Minnedosa and District Museum in 1999 and fully restored.
