Description of Historic Place
Henderson Terrace is a Municipal Heritage Property located in the City of Regina. The two-storey, brick row houses, constructed in 1913, occupy a wedge-shaped site between 18th Avenue and Leopold Crescent, occupying 1400 square metres in the historic Crescents area of the city.
The heritage value of Henderson Terrace lies in its row house architecture, a unique form within Regina. The row of eight dwellings, attached as a single unit, differentiates this property in a city comprised at the time of mostly of single-family dwellings and apartment blocks. Symmetrical in appearance, the red brick terrace constructed in 1913 features sandstone detailing, open porches, and a gambrel roof. Influenced by contemporary English garden suburb developments, the terrace is situated amidst a neighbourhood of crescent streets, harmonizing with this context.
The heritage value of the property is also associated with Regina’s development boom prior to the First World War. Especially during the half-decade prior to the War, real estate development surged due to the promotion and speculation of numerous developers, such as Charles G. Henderson, who developed the terrace. A contractor and partner in the firm of R & C.G. Henderson Real Estate, Henderson was responsible for the development for a sizable amount of residential development in Regina during this period.
City of Regina Bylaw No. 7625.
