Historic Sites of Manitoba: Wardrop House (Whitemouth, RM of Whitemouth)

A farmhouse in Whitemouth, in the Rural Municipality of Whitemouth, was built in 1885 by local businessman Walter Wardrop. When his son David Malcolm Wardrop married Mabel Cousins in 1911, they took over the property and moved into the house. David had the barn built in 1918 and used it for their dairy operation. It was later owned by David and Mabel’s son William Leslie “Les” Wardrop.
