Posted on March 6, 2015 by Team Powerhouse in Commercial, Real Estate, Residential

To celebrate the incorporation of Prince George as a city on March 6th, 2015, we’ve scoured The Exploration Place archives in search of our ten favourite Prince George residential and commercial real estate moments.

 

 

10) Accessibility was an important issue. Almost all buildings were accessible by horse.

9) Is it a hut or a tent?

A bank was established here, because what could be more secure?

2) & 1) In the good old days of commercial real estate, having a moose in or on top of your business was a sign of prosperity.
