1906 William Grimshaw Homestead

This home was built in 1906 just 8 miles north of Parkbeg, Sask. Mr. Grimsahw lived in this house as a bachelor until 1956 when he moved to Moose Jaw. Imagine living in this tiny room by yourself for 50 years! The house is furnished with its original stove, bed and trunk, complete with Willie's collection of cards, letters and legal papers. The picture hanging on the wall is Willie Grimshaw himself. There is a story that Willie used to move his stove close to the bed in the wintertime so that he could put more wood in the stove without getting out of bed.
