While the old house is neat to see it feels very cluttered and you can definitely tell that some maintenance and cleaning need to be done. The staff seemed incredibly scattered and didn't seem to know what was going on.

A bit of a hidden gem in Kenora, but worth the effort if you enjoy visiting period homes. This is a boss's house on the hill, overlooking the sawmill, complete with servant back-stairs, and a maid's room. Nice examples of early electrical wiring and indoor...More
