The Huble House

Upon returning from Ontario with his new bride Annie, Albert Huble set out to build the home in which the couple would raise a family. The home was a squared log home; typical of the Ontario log homes they likely grew up in.. Each corner was dove tailed and carefully fitted. Moss was gathered and clay dug to be used for chinking. He went upriver and cut cedar blocks to be made into shingles later. In a January 18th, 1912 diary entry Al mentions that “broke road up the hill to get the house logs…” For the next few months he spent a considerable amount of time hewing and whipsawing logs for the new family home.

The Huble Kitchen




By October Al Huble was installing stovepipes and stoves. The following spring he attached the cabin he and Annie had been living in for the past year for use as a kitchen.


The Huble House


Once completed, the two story house boasted a cellar, a large parlour and dining room, an office for Al from which he could see travellers arriving from both the river and the wagon road, a first floor master bedroom, 4 upstairs bedrooms and a summer kitchen.


The 1912 Huble House became the summer residence of Mrs. Josephine Walker Mitchell upon purchase of the Huble's 336 acre property in 1929. After she sold the property in 1957 the house passed through the hands of several owners. In 1983 a proposal to move the historic house from its original location on the Fraser River to the Old Brewery site in Prince George became public. A group of area residents organized to stop the move and began restoration in 1985. In 1989 the Huble House was unveiled to the public as a centrepiece of the Huble Homstead Historic Site. The Huble House is the oldest building standing on its original location in the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.
