26 Third Street
(1903): Gussenhoven Home.
Also known as The Castle, this Queen Anne house was built from brick
that came from the brick factory Mr. Gussenhoven owned. Mr. Gussenhoven
owned many businesses, starting with trade and construction at Fort
Assinniboine, and expanding to a steam laundry and the brick and lumber
company. He also bought the Citizens National Bank. After years of
abandonment, the Pasma family purchased the home and worked on the
home’s interior infrastructure as well as a new roof. The home was then
sold to the Swanson family, who in turn put the pieces together and
brought the home back to its former glory. This home earned two 1999
Havre Historic Preservation Awards, one for each family.
