Sexsmith House

Because surviving examples of pioneer buildings from the 1870s are rare in Manitoba, this little log house is special, a reminder of the difficult early years endured by our ancestors.

The building is typical of the type, a simple form with a gable roof. The house was built by George Sexsmith, whose first sojourn to Manitoba in 1870 as part of the Wolseley Expedition was cut short by a broken leg. Undaunted, he returned in 1872, homesteaded, and married Flora Field. Mr. Sexsmith was a notable early politician as well, serving as councillor and reeve.

The site was designated on May 14, 1998, by the Town of Carman.

Location: 18 Kings Park Road, Carman
