A heavy haul team successfully moved a massive historic train station house to a new location.

The trucking crew from Nickel Bros. in B.C. relocated the Hope Station House on February 15th, taking it on a brief journey through Hope town to its new spot at 919 Water Avenue downtown. There, it will serve as a central point for tourism and community activities.

The Hope Station House was built in 1916 by the Great Northern Railway and was connected to the internment of Japanese Canadians during World War II.

It was scheduled for demolition in 2021 but was saved by the Tashme Historical Society (THS), who helped organize the building move with help from Nickel Bros.
