New plan in the works for Hope Station House

Interested group has the ability to bring this building back to life

At this time we are so very fortunate to have a group of good young people who are interested in taking our beloved station house to a new level of function.

This great building is located at the intersection of four major highways of British Columbia and is the first building you see when you come off Highway 1 into Hope and district.

This group of young people interested have the ability to research and receive grants, and raise funds from different levels of government to bring this building back to life for the six and half thousand people of Hope. This would take the building from being open from four to six hours a week to being open 365 days a year, being front and centre to the approximately seven million people that travel through Hope each year.

Sometime in the next two years this building becomes 100 years old so lets see if we all can send it into its second century being used as an icon for all of the people of Hope. Let’s get this building back on track.
