North Side, East to West, (Odd Numbered Lots)

Legal Block 61, Lots 11-20, #1201-#1237, First St.

Lot 11, Block 61- #1201 1st- NW Corner (#108- 12th Ave ?).-history booklets say this is 1201 1st st -Milne House built in 1912. A. F. Milne family lived here for about 30 years per Heritage Walking Tours of Estevan Booklet., He ran a bakery on the site if the Tower Cafe on 4th st today (2017) Served as Mayor of Estevan in 1918. this house appeared in the 1914 promotional booklet of Estevan, as it justly deserved. I think it is one of the nicest houses in Estevan, even today. Adam Finlayson Milne b- Apr 8, 1881, Brechin, Forfar, Scotland, d- Aug 15, 1946 in Victoria BC, age 65, buried in Estevan City Cemetery. father- John McArthur Milne, mother- Mary Ann Findlayson. wife- Georgina (Davina?) Milne, b-ca 1882 in Scotland, son- John Milne b- ca 1907 in sK, lived in Boston MA in 1944, son- George Milne, b- ca 1911 in SK, and son- Adam Milne, b- ca 1914 in SK. and Robert Milne : Adam's younger brother John Milne lived in Estevan in 1916 near him, shown married, as a carpenter. Adam Milne came from Glasgow Scotland to Montreal, Quebec, arriving June 16, 1906, on the Carthaginian. Adam F. Milne lived here in 1921. b- age 39, in Scotland., He Owned a store at #1138 4th St. - Wife- Georgina Milne, 4 sons, John Milne, George Milne, Adam Milne, and Robert Milne. His sister Grace Milne lived with them in 1921 as well.
Then we have a discrepancy from one history book to another, as the thicker brown one says this is the Dunbar House. Same build date of 1912, but built for publisher of the Estevan Mercury, Donald Culloden Dunbar. As you can see above, Adam Milne Family lived at 108 12th ave. in 1921. Donald C. Dunbar family lived at 921 3rd st in 1921, so I think the Milne House is correct. Dunbar maybe bought it from Milne later causing the confusion? Historic Estevan House either way.
