Fish Hatchery Residence

302 Glen Avenue, 1913

In 1913 the Department of Marine Fisheries established a fish hatchery in this area to introduce non-native sport fish into the region's lakes. The Fish Hatchery Superintendent's Residence is a typical prairie "four square" design. Between 1904 and 1988 nearly 34 million fish were released into the region's lakes. In 1988 fish stocking of Park's lakes was discontinued altogether due to high costs and a change in philosophy toward the region's lakes and resource management. The actual hatchery facility was removed in the early 1970's.
