Davidson/Wigg Cottage

Built around 1915, the Davidson/Wigg Cottage is an excellent and well maintained example of the “long gable” type of structure that still defines so much of Gimli’s cottage stock. It has been in the family for three generations, beginning in 1937.

The building is a typical side-gable type, with the long edge of the roof facing the front. Accessed though the long porch along the front, which faces onto the lake, residents and visitors enter into a modest and well-lit interior that hasn’t changed much over nearly 100 years.

The building has been designated as a Municipal Heritage Site.
