Bayne Residence

202 Otter Street, 1913

This home was built in 1913 by D.C. Bayne, a Canadian Parks Service employee and the town of Banff's Notary Public. Mr. Bayne was also a business partner with David White in the operation of general stores in Bankhead and in Banff at 103 Banff Avenue. In 1921, Bayne left Banff for employment with the Calgary School Board.

This house incorporates brick, stucco, timbering and a unique cobblestone foundation. The large covered porch and interior layout suggest the property's intended prominence among Banff's high society of the early twentieth century. The home remains essentially intact. It is one of only a few remaining examples of red brick homes built in Banff prior to the First World War.

In 1946, this property was acquired by James and Evelyn McLeod who operated one of Banff's premier transportation companies, Rocky Mountain Tours and Transport Co.. The property was later owned by the McLeod's daughter Jean (Waterhouse) Walls and her family.
