Dr. M. S. Wade House, c.1905

January 10, 2012

Kamloops, British Columbia, is privileged to have an area within walking distance of the downtown core that features many historic and stately homes.  These Heritage Houses were built around the turn of the 20th Century when Kamloops was still a relatively new Incoporated Municipality (1893).

This particular home is known as the Dr. Mark S. Wade House, built in 1905 by the Eye, Ear and Throat Specialist who came to Kamloops in 1895 from Victoria, B. C.   It is located at 95 St. Paul Street West, a street known for its Victorian houses, many featuring a prominent veranda.  Because Kamloops can get significantly hot in the summer, the front porches still provide a welcome respite from the heat of the day.

  1. Such a marvelous perspective on this old beauty and a perfect palette to complement its lemony clapboards.


  2. Saw many old homes in Victoria and Toronto…Love the character with it.


  3. Thank you very much! I am in the middle of catching up on painting, so my blogging is falling by the wayside (smile). This is an old home (Canada standards of old) and they love feeding crows, but I didn’t put them in the painting because I thought it would go from ‘mysterious’ to ‘creepy’ (which it is, for real). Many thanks Jen.


  4. I love this very mysterious!
