The Coalmont Hotel is turning 100 years old. Celebrations to be held July 27 and 28.

This year the historic Coalmont Hotel is celebrating its 100th birthday and everyone of the age of majority (19+ years) is invited to the party on July 27 and 28.

A century ago, when the town of Coalmont was first started by the Columbia Coal company, one of the first buildings to go up was the Coalmont Hotel. After all, they needed rooms for prospective buyers and – a place to drink.

Hosts Michelle Cole and Gerry Hampton extend an invitation to everyone to come join the two day party celebrating the survival of this authentic old west hotel and saloon which has proudly served visitors to Coalmont and the Tulameen Mining District since 1912. Music will be provided by The New Fish, an Irish/East-Coast band from Vancouver who will be playing both Friday and Saturday night.

Saturday afternoon there will be a barbecue and a $10 dinner at 6 p.m., in the evening.

For more information please visit or call 250-295-6066.
