Fred Wells' House

Overlooks the mine he discovered. Popular stories tell us that Mr. Wells, a man addicted to prospecting, lived in his workshop in the rear and gave over the entire house to his housekeeper, Mrs. Snoxell, and her family. Mrs Snoxell's husband was Fred Wellsą chauffeur. He would usually only go in the house for his favorite breakfast, of pancakes and maple syrup, that Mrs. Snoxell would prepare for him every day.

Fred spent little time actually living in this house, however. Being every bit the prospector that he was, he preferred to be out trekking in the wilderness, camping with the wildlife, and seeking out new adventures and gold!
