Designate Regina's Bagshaw Residence as a Heritage Property

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


We call upon Regina City Council to demonstrate its commitment to preserve and protect significant heritage properties in Regina by granting a Municipal Heritage Property Designation to the exterior of the Bagshaw Residence.

Whereas:

The Bagshaw Residence, built in 1913, is one of the few remaining homes of the pre-World War I era in the Crescents neighbourhood;

The heritage value of the property is found in:

  • its long association with Frederick Bagshaw, a distinguished lawyer and judge who actively contributed to community life in Regina and to the development of the province and Canada;
  • its long association with Mrs. Esther Bagshaw, who actively contributed to community life in Regina and the province, particularly in her work with the Girl Guides organization,
  • its connection to Frederick Chapman Clemesha, the home’s architect and internationally recognized designer of the post-World War I Canadian battlefield memorial at St. Julien, Belgium,
  • the details of its Craftsman-style architecture,
  • its influence in helping to establish and define the character of the Crescents neighbourhood.

Heritage Regina is facilitating this petition as requested by members of the Regina community.
