re #8 on photo above, with thanks!
"sorry forgot this bit of info - the army
buildings on the east end of town
(where curling rink now is) were used as a school beginning in 1948.
It was named
Riverside Elementary School
and at least 2 of the 3 buildings
were in continual use until December 1966.
The 1966 -67 classes started the New Year at E.T. Kenney School on
Riverside was opened for one more school year 1968-1969
for the Grade 8 students of Terrace.
There was no room at Skeena Secondary School and Caledonia Secondary
had not yet been completed so the Gr 8 classes were housed at Riverside.
That was the last year it was used as a public school.
I am told that when the Catholic School
burned to the ground in the summer of 196??
their students were housed in Riverside while their new school was built.
The school was torn down in the late 70's and all that lovely straight
was sold throughout the community
where it was re-cycled into sheds, greenhouse and wharves."

am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives,
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "Link" to my page
from Facebook, Blogs, etc.
Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "Link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and proper way to do it!
