Jewel in the Rough

I stumbled upon this old gem near Swan River Manitoba last summer. I LOVE finding something like this... LOVE IT!  It makes me curious about the story of this house, how it came to be like this.  It's a turn of the century home, mansion really.  This was a big house back in the day, and very well made.
It was a little scary trespassing exploring through it... with no means of defense except my pretty face and uncanny ability to bullshit my way out of a troubling scenario.  But that doesn't work so well on wild animals... or falling through the floor (which thankfully didn't happen).
