The Marr Residence
Spending time at the Marr Residence, the oldest house in Saskatoon on its original foundations, was one of the most interesting experiences of my growing up years. I really loved the atmosphere it had, the way it felt old, like the wood had soaked in the souls of the people who lived there somehow. They use the building for programs to show people around. One of my favourite events there ever was a storytelling night by candlelight - in the middle of a winter storm at night while the wind howled. Not even kidding! I have had so many good days there. Also, the place is said to be haunted, especially in the basement, because it was once a war hospital. It sparked a love of character homes in me, I'd someday like to live in one.
