The Grand Old Lady ...

... of Walnut St. That's Dwight Hall to the uninitiated. This is I think, my favourite building in all of Powell River. It was built in 1927 by the Powell River Co., and named for Dr.Dwight Brooks, one of the founders of the company. In 1957 it was sold to the District of Powell River. As the signage says "Since then care has been taken to maintain the building as close to its original state as possible. It is still a centre of community activity and remains as beautiful now as it was in 1927."
I couldn't agree more.
