The Actual Oldest House In The City? Tucked Away Under A Canopy Of Mature Trees In A Park Like Setting On A Very Large Fully Fenced Lot At The End Of A Quiet Riverside Street Is This Very Historic, Well Kept, Two Story, Family Home. It Is Located Right Across From The Very Secluded Hargrave Park. It'S Within Walking Distance To The River, Local Restaurants And Shops, Downtown And Its Very Possibly The Oldest Home In Medicine Hat. According To City Records This Home Was Built In 1880 !! The Railway Reportedly Arrived In Medicine Hat 3 Years Later On May 31 1883. The Well Known And Well Preserved Ewart-Duggan House Was Built 7 Years Later In 1887. This Home Was Originally Built By Robert McCutcheon Who Was A Very Prominent Member Of The N.W.M.P., The Sheriff For 22 Years And The Name Sake Of Medicine Hat'S Scenic McCutcheon Drive. In 1913 The Surrounding Estate That The House Sat On Was Converted From Livestock And Horse Stables To The Brookwood Auto Camp. Because Cars Were A New Thing, A Group Of Cabins Were Built And Available For Rent By Motorists Coming Down The Trans Canda Highway Which Is Now 3rd Street. The Nearby & Newly Constructed Finlay Bridge Was The Only Way The Public Could Cross The River. By 1955 The New Trans Canada Highway Bridge Was Constructed Near The Power House So Traffic To The Guest Cabins Had Lessened And The Auto Camp Was Removed And The Site Was Turned Into A Mobile Home Park. Eventually This Was Made Into A Bareland Condominium And The Lots Were Sold Off To The Mobile Home Owners. That Is Why Today, This House Is Inside Of The Brookwood Condominium Corp. Enough Of The History I Love So Much, Its A 4 Bedroom One Bath Two Story House With An Updated Kitchen, A Dining Room, A Living Room And Other Rooms To Be Used As You See Fit. There Is A Private Shady Deck Right Off The Kitchen, A Fully Fenced Yard Ready For Your Family And A Large Detached Two Car Garage. Very Affordably Priced And In A Great Location. If You Are Looking For A Qu Iet Home Where Your Neighbours Cannot Have Kids Or Dogs, This Condo Association Is The One For You. This Is The Only Home In The Condo Corp That Is Exempt. (Id:15898)
