Restoration of the Canmore Hotel

It’s good news for the venerable Canmore Hotel and for Canmore. Neil Richardson of Heritage Property Corporation of Calgary has great plans for the Hotel, built in 1890, and Alberta’s oldest wooden hotel and the province’s second-oldest operating hotel. I can’t help but think it is the best-case scenario and I’m looking forward to seeing the work get underway and be completed. A story I wrote about Neil’s project can be found here, complete with an artist’s rendition of how it will look once completed. Canmore has lost the majority of its heritage buildings, but at least we know this is one building that will persist.
