Minto House (1926), 835 Saginaw Street S, (NR)

This stucco two and a half story Arts and Crafts home has a rolled roof line to simulate the thatched roof of an English cottage. A garden is enclosed on the south. In 1949 an addition was made for another bedroom and an office. Both this house and the one next door are so situated that the owner could see the operation of his sheep ranch on Minto island just across the slough to the rear of the house. See photograph of this house in 1991.

This is actually 821 Saginaw Street South. 835 is the house next door. The addresses got reversed.
