Built in 1884 the Marr Residence is the oldest home in Saskatoon that is still on its original site. The property was acquired by the City of Saskatoon in 1979 and restored. In 1982 the House received Municipal Heritage Designation. In June of 2016 The Marr received National Historic Designation. In 1885 the Riel Resistance broke out and the Marr was seconded to be used as a field hospital. Wounded and sick were brought from Fish Creek and Batoche overland or on the steamer Northcote to be cared for at the Marr.
