Description du lieu patrimonial

326 - 11th Street East is a Municipal Heritage Property consisting of a single lot in the old Nutana district of Saskatoon. The property features a 1½-storey, wood-frame building built in 1883-1884.

Valeur patrimoniale

The heritage value of 326 - 11th Street East, commonly know as the Marr Residence, lies in its association with the history of Saskatoon as a tangible link to the Temperance Colonization Company settlement. One of the earliest, more commodious houses built in Nutana, it is believed to be among those constructed from the first barge load of lumber sent to the young colony. The Marr Residence was a clearly identifiable feature of Saskatoon’s built landscape long before the days of street addresses, affording a splendid view of the vital pioneer artery, the South Saskatchewan River. General Middleton’s forces requisitioned the residence in 1885 for use as a field hospital during the North West Uprising. The Marr family continued to live in the house until 1889 and the property served as a domestic residence until the late 1970s.

The heritage value of 326 – 11th Street East also resides in its unique blend of Second Empire and Pioneer Vernacular architectural styles. A 1½-storey wood-frame house with a Mansard roof and dormer windows, it consisted of a kitchen, a great room and two upstairs bedrooms accessible by a split staircase. Various changes have been made over the years resulting in additional living space and the development of the house’s Pioneer Vernacular influences.
