Featured Walking Tour Homes


Located at 1100 Buxton this house was designed and built in 1905 by local architect A.M Fraser. The house has been featured in at least a couple of thriller movie productions shot locally: Stranger in Town with Harry Hamlin and Graham Greene and Walled In with Mischa Barton.



In 1904 an English gentleman had this two-story brick house built for his fiancée at 1008 Grand Avenue. Unfortunately, upon inspection she was said to have termed the house "monstrous" and returned to England.



This house located at 424 Buxton Street was built for Mr. W.F. Johnston in 1897. "The Leader", Regina dated Jan 5, 1899 describes the wedding of Miss Bessie M. Johnston, daughter of W.F. Johnston, to Mr. Andrew Dickson of Breezy Heights. This wedding occurred in this house. The guest list was a veritable 'who's who' of Indian Head in 1899.
