Description of Historic Place
Maria DeGirolamo's Residence is a Municipal Heritage Property situated on a quarter-section of land in the Rural Municipality of Blaine Lake. The designation applies to the two-and-a-half-storey brick farmhouse.
The heritage significance of Maria DeGirolamo's Residence lies in its architecture. The brick residence was constructed in 1919 by Jean Baptiste Godbout, the original owner of the property. Built of brick in the domestic vernacular architectural style, the home evokes a sense of permanency and stability. The use of white brick as the primary building material is unique, since many of the district’s earliest homesteads were made of either red brick or wood.
