Doukhobor House

Buchanan, Saskatchewan, Can. - 1975

An old Doukhobor House. Doukhobors were members of a Christian religious sect established in Russia (ca. 1600-1700). They were persecuted and forced to leave Russia; many moved to Canada in 1898 and 1899. Some of my wife's ancestors built and lived in this tiny farmhouse in Saskatchewan.
