HOME, HISTORIC HOME
Chances are that not far from you, there’s a famous house or a house where someone famous lived
THE BOTTLE HOUSES
Located near Cap-Egmont, near Summerside, P.E.I., these pretty buildings made from recycled glass bottles have been open to the public for nearly 40 years. Edouard Arsenault used more than 25,000 bottles to make the unusual house, church and tavern, as well as other sculptures and decorations on the property.
Surrounded by Quebec City, this recreation of a Wendat (Huron) village has a longhouse, tent for sweat ceremonies, a tipi and more. Guides explain how the Wendat came to this area, how they lived in the past and how they live now. You can explore further at the nearby Wendake Huron-Wendat Museum.
CAPTAIN MARTIN HOUSE
After coming to the Yukon from Newfoundland during the Gold Rush, Captain Patrick Martin settled down, opened a store, and built this house in Whitehorse around 1906. Although it looks simple, it was one of the fanciest houses in the city at the time, and one of the few still standing from that period.
