There were only four properties on the Prince George Heritage Register. That is until this week. On Monday, City Council approved a two new additions to the list. The Munro/Moffat and Pitman (pictured above) are being added to the register to make the total of properties listed, six.
The chair of the Prince George Heritage Commission Caroline Ross said the commission has been working on this for a while and it has finally come to fruition. “The Heritage Commission has done a lot of work in the last year to identify a list of properties in Prince George that have heritage value and with these two properties, we had a lot of information on them and the owners of the properties gave us their consent.”
The Munro/ Moffat house which was built in 1914, and the Pitman house which was constructed in 1921 are both rich in architecture and history. The Munro/ Moffat was built by John Munro who moved to Prince George to open the Bank of British North America in 1914. The Pitman house is a two-story home that was modeled after Dutch-Colonial housing style.
