In 2002 we celebrated the ten-year anniversary of the re-opening of our beautiful Victoria Hall after its destruction in the 1989 fire, with a big Gala Fundraiser. This architectural work of art that is Victoria Hall, was completed in 1889 at an initial cost of $35,000. It housed municipal offices, police and fire stations, a jail and an opera house - the acoustics of which were said to be second to none.
The beautiful building, with its stained glass windows and clock towers, was tragically destroyed by the fire just before its 100th anniversary. Restoration of the hall was completed and re-opened with a gala event on September 20, 1992. The town’s administrative offices are housed in the building along with a 400 seat, professional state-of-the-art climate-controlled theatre.
