The Fort Langley Community Hall might not be located in Vancouver, but with its countless television and film appearances, and being a popular venue for events and gatherings throughout all seasons, it’s today’s (Greater) Vancouver Icons photo feature:

Fort Langley Community Hall

Located at 9167 Glover Road, the Fort Langley Community Hall has been used in shows like Once Upon at Time, Bates Motel, Fringe, Supernatural, Riverdale, motion pictures, TV movies, and commercials.

It was designed by architect Archibald Campbell Hope and built in 1931. The Fort Langley Community Improvement Society was founded by the Fort Langley Women’s Institute in 1924, in order to build the community hall.
