What happened in this house?

Did I get your attention? Maybe I should not have used that heading, but it is what I wonder every time I am there. Perhaps I should explain. This house is more then a house. It is a home. One that saw so many settlers in its day. Built in 1905 by The Canadian Pacific for accommodation for visiting superintendents who were overseeing the railroad construction. Not slapped together for another sale. The construction was thought out. Beautifully built. Round hallway corner, detailed craft thru-out. Gorgeous stained glass, heavy doors and solid manicured trim. An over-sized dining area was a necessity. Natural light was a must. 2 staircases. Space in the parlor (living room) to retreat to and spacious bedrooms were created. I wonder what kind of day the guests and residents of this home had. I imagine the kitchen baked many loaves of homemade bread and the high ceilings in the dining room boasted an echo of conversation. Perhaps an occasional moment of loneliness staring out the large bedroom windows dreaming of loved ones that will soon join them in the pursuit of the west. Over the years 216 Ansley Street has had many upgrades especially after it was moved from Richardson to Rouleau in the fall of 2007. A woman with the love of history wanted to keep the details of the home intact while making it her own. Now it’s time for the next owner to finish the vision. Do you have a vision for a historic home?
