About Gurney House, Nainital

Gurney House is a historic building located in Nainital, Uttarakhand, India, and was the residence of hunter-conservationist and writer Jim Corbett. It is located near Nainital Lake, and was built in 1881. Miss Margaret Winifred Corbett, Jim Corbett's sister, sold the house to Mr. Sharda Prasad Varma in the year 1947 when they left for Kenya. Currently the house is owned by his granddaughter, Nilanjana Dalmia. The cottage was constructed in 1880 with the dismantled material of their earlier house on Alma Hill (which was on the hill on which a landslide occurred). And hence the name implying a house built of carted material of a dismantled house.
