The Prokop family is selling their historic home, located east of Saskatoon, SK. This was the Gordon Farmhouse from Cupar, SK. It was built in 1916. The house was designed by David Brown, of the Montreal architectural firm of Brown and Vallance, which designed many of the early buildings on the University of Saskatchewan Campus. The house was relocated several times. At one time was known as Rose Bush Acres, a bed and breakfast at Watson, SK. Source: Frank Korvemaker S.A.A. (Hon.) Archivist & Construction Historian. LINKTO
