North Peace Museum set to add another piece to collection

IMG_0214FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – If you are wondering why there is a foundation being laid at the North Peace Museum, The Fort St. John North Peace Museum is going to have a new attraction for people to look at coming in September.

The Bartlett Allen second homestead house is sitting just north of Taylor currently and will be coming to the North Peace Museum.

Heather Sjoblom, the museum’s curator, says they hope to move the house onto the foundation in September.

The house doesn’t have the original flooring in it any longer, hence why a new foundation is being built so the building can be put in.

The building will go on top of the foundation and they will replace some of the logs that are missing from the bottom. There is some work that needs to be done to the house, such as the roof as it is missing many shingles. They will also be renovating the house from the inside, a process that could take a little while.

The building will be permanent, and they hope to have it open from May until September.
