Support Fort St John News

Almost three years after construction stopped on the Fort Hotel renovations, the historical building finally met the demo team today – Crews were onsite all day tearing down the majority of the structure in downtown Fort St. John.

Crews expect to have the majority of the building knocked down today.  Local Historian and City Councilor Larry Evans says this hotel has been a big part of Fort St. John’s history.
