PRINCE ALBERT TOWN HALL




PRINCE ALBERT TOWN HALL

The council of the burgeoning town of Prince Albert commissioned the architectural firm of F.J. Rostrick and Son of Hamilton in 1892 to design a town hall and opera house. Built by A. and W.B. Goodfellow of locally produced brick the new facility was a combination of elegance and solidity. It is the oldest building of its type in what is now Saskatchewan. The porte-sochere entrance-way and wroght-iron balcony are unique for town halls of that era. City offices, a performance area, a magistrate's court, and a jail were facility by this building for many years. It was converted into an arts and senior citizen's centre in 1969. The building was designated a Provincial Heritage Property under The Heritage Property Act 1990 in 1991. Image:GoogleMaps
