Thorson House

Thorson House

The Thorson House is a touchstone for the people of Gimli.

It is associated with Stefan Thorson (the original owner and one-time mayor of Gimli), Cartoon Charlie (a well known comic artist who was responsible for early version of Walt Disney characters, including Snow White), and more recently Leo Kristjanson, former President of the University of Saskatchewan and a tireless advocate for Gimli's built heritage. It has been home to the Hannes Kristjanson family and the famous Kristjanson brothers for the past 80 years.
