In that year, the proposed Kettle Valley Railroad route was along Rosedale Avenue with a spur line east to C.P.R. President Shaughnessy’s orchard and west to the Red Building.

Over the years, the property has been the site of Muir Steuart’s packing house, Marzuk Friesen’s Homeside Video Store and currently is being extensively renovated for the new PetBarn.
