The family of John and Emma McFadyn was the first family to settle in what would become Parksbeg, Saskatchewan.  John became the second station agent.  He was born at Augustine Cove, Prince Edward Island in 1852.

This house stands on the on the North hillside beside the East bound TransCanada Highway.

It was one of the first houses in the area to have central heating and complete indoor plumbing.

In 1941 the Lawson’s moved into this house on the hill.
