in Alberta Heritage Markers

For 51 years, from 1921 to 1972, this small building was the source of news in the town of Coleman. Oddly, this was an anti-labour newspaper, a rarity in small towns in its time - UNLESS they were financed by big business, which happened on occasion.

We're unaware of the date of construction of this wood frame building, though it stands along what was once the main commercial street in the town amid several other wood frame buildings of the same apparent vintage. Possibly it was built in 1920.

Still going strong as a hotel, this brick structure, built in 1924, replaced a wood frame hotel built in 1904, just a year after Coleman itself had its beginnings. Given that, it may well be that the Grand Union was the first hotel built in the town.

Had it not been for Coleman's worst fire, which took out six buildings in 1948, we would not have a Roxy Theatre. No longer open, the theatre appears as though it could have been closed for several years now.

One of the more notable parts of Coleman's heritage, many of the coke ovens built in 1903 survive along the railroad tracks on the south end of town. They provided coke to smelters in Southern BC for many years, the last being shut down in 1952.
