Old Geo’s Antiques

During the winter break my brother Mike and I embarked on a day trip to our grandparents’ former farm. Along the way we stopped in at Old Geo’s Antiques in Whitewood. George owns a two and a half story house built in 1885. I believe there are seventeen rooms in the house and at least five staircases. We stepped in and George invited us to tour his house stuffed with antiques of all kinds – bottles, radios, lamps, First Nations pipes and tools, food tins, spinning wheels, telegraphs and more. In addition there is a village of about 20 buildings on his property. Being it winter, we only stopped in at the saloon. We spent about two hours looking around and chatting to George. Over 24,000 visitors have been to Old Geo’s. He has been featured in Prairies North magazine, Beijing Cosmopolitan, and other publications.
