Description du lieu patrimonial

The McTaggart Residence is a gabled roof, rectangular bungalow, with an enclosed front verandah. A wood frame structure clad with wood siding and decorative wood shingles, it is located on a rectangular city lot in Edmonton's mature Norwood neighbourhood.

Valeur patrimoniale

Significant as a well-preserved modest craftsman bungalow, the McTaggart Residence is also representative of a middle-income single-family dwelling of the post-World War One era.

The McTaggart Residence uses a variety of decorative motifs reminiscent of the craftsman style such as, square posts with capitals supporting the verandah, exposed rafters with scrolled ends, large eave brackets and decorative wood shingles in the gable ends.

The house, built circa 1922, is significant for its association with individuals and families who made contributions to the community through their military and civic participation.
Built by a real-estate developer, it was first occupied by John Lawson Haight, a veteran of World War One and teacher. John Wesley McTaggart, a well-known accountant, and his wife Myril, both active citizens of Edmonton, bought the house in 1925. Mrs. McTaggart lived in the house until 1977.
