McIntosh House to become historical resource

One of Red Deer’s most attractive historic homes may soon assume its rightful place under the Alberta Historical Resource Act. The picturesque 1906-built McIntosh House at 4631 Ross St. was listed as a Municipal Historic Resources in city bylaws some time ago, but was inadvertently not formally designated under the provincial act.

One of Red Deer’s most attractive historic homes may soon assume its rightful place under the Alberta Historical Resource Act.

The picturesque 1906-built McIntosh House at 4631 Ross St. was listed as a Municipal Historic Resources in city bylaws some time ago, but was inadvertently not formally designated under the provincial act.

City council unanimously passed a notice of intent to designate the house a historic resource on Monday. Once 60 days have passed, council can pass a bylaw designating the site.

Built by Red Deer master mason Julius McIntosh, the two-storey brick house was a showcase for his talents. His father and grandfather developed the McIntosh apple.

The home is now the McIntosh House Bed and Breakfast owned by Trudy Madole, who supports the historical designation.
