Vancouver Icons: Fort Langley Community Hallby
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:
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.
The hall is maintained by a volunteer Board of Directors and is used as an event space, wedding venue, and for the Fort Langley Library. Inside its elegant ballroom is party space, complete with a stage and a horse hair sprung wooden ballroom floor hosted its inaugural ball in March of 1931.

Should you have a suggestion for the Vancouver Icons series please feel free to leave a note in the comments. It should be a thing, statue, or place that is very visible and recognizable to the public.
