Olson House

Olson House

A very significant Gimli house, this imposing and attractive building was constructed in 1910 for A.B. and Joreen Olson, and was later owned by Hector and Nellie McGinnis. Hector was the manager of the Armstrong-Gimli Fishery and was mayor of the town from 1927–32 and again in 1938–47.

The house is typical of the kind of large and commanding homes that the community’s elite built in the early 20th century. A few changes have been made to the house over the years, but it still maintains a high level of historical integrity.
