The makeover is almost complete and the Telephone Museum's 25th birthday celebration is tomorrow! We all know that there are many interesting and exciting artifacts inside the museum, but did you know that the building itself is pretty special?

Our phone museum building is one of the few surviving examples of the very popular pre-fabricated buildings manufactured by BC Mills in the early 1900's. The pieces of the building would have been shipped to Aldergrove by train and then assembled on site. Here's an early ad for the BC Mills company along with an article from Parks Canada that offers more in-depth information on the BC Mills pre-fab building system. Why, you just might recognize one of the buildings pictured in it! parkscanadahistory.com/series/chs/14/chs14-2g.htm

On the agenda for Council's afternoon meeting on Monday 10 June 2019 - another step forward, now we wait to see what Council will do on Monday. Hopefully they do the right thing and agree with the assessment to conserve the old fire hall.

While conserving the fire hall building is the prime objective, we now hope to move forward with negotiating a much needed new archive, workshop and meeting space for the Aldergrove community.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far!
