Stephansson House is a one and one-half storey log and wood frame cottage painted in bright pink with lime green trim, in a vernacular Victorian neo-Gothic style, with landscape features, located on 1.7 hectares in a rural setting north of Markerville in west-central Alberta.
The heritage value of the Markerville Creamery site lies in its association with the establishment and growth of the dairy industry in Alberta and in its excellent and rare example of early industrial architecture in Alberta.
