Historic Sites of Manitoba: Armadale Cottage (175 Gimli Road, Ponemah, Dunnottar)

This wood-frame cottage was built in 1937 by the Empire Sash and Door Company for J. H. Findlay. It has rounded cedar log siding that graduate from larger at the bottom to more slender at the top. Armadale’s most unusual features are its architectural and decorative details, including materials salvaged from a mansion on Wellington Crescent (probably the 1911-1912 house of Daniel Hunter McMillan). It has a huge fireplace, chandelier, leaded windows and oak flooring, and is in excellent condition with a high level of physical integrity.
