0502.0180: Castlegar-Robson Ferry Slip

A view of the old ferry slip approach (Castlegar side) off Columbia Avenue with the old Donnan store building. The jail building was originally located in behind the store. A a contributor adds: Indeed, this was Bert & Jesse Donnan's store back in the day. Originally the property was owned by Fredricksons, who ran a store behind this building that was attached to their residence. It was called "The Cozy Corner". The property was a narrow strip of land that was developed a bit further beyond than just this. They also had "Cozy Cabins", several free standing rentals, as well as a camping area. Situated midway between the Cozy Corner store and residence and the Cozy Cabins & Campsite, was once a brick factory, that predated all of the aforementioned.
