Victoria Block

A little history about our new home in the Victoria Block…


“The first and central building, Victoria, was built in 1898 at the time of the great Gold Rush. Built to house prospectors, explorers, and new comers searching for gold in our wild and rugged British Columbia. The second building, Victoria Block, was built in 1908 to house the numerous real estate offices for the turn of the century real estate boom. The two buildings stand proudly at the corner of Homer and Pender Streets.” – Victorian Hotel –
