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.
