These are some pictures of Army Buildings still standing in Terrace.  Some of the residences have been moved or lumber has been salvaged to build the homes.  The picture of the Army Chapel was taken many years ago.  MacKay's Funeral Chapel is now built over this.  The chapel at MacKays still has shiplap visible in the garage and the foyer is the former Carpenter Shop. Many of the buildings were demolished and much of the lumber was salvaged and used in many other homes around Terrace.

These are some residences still standing in Terrace.  The residence, which is marked Home Signal Station, was moved from a location near Uplands School.  It was used to signal planes into the airport.  The Red Cross Hospital was formerly the Brigade Headquarters.  The entrance was to the side of the present one. 
Other buildings which were in use for many years, but are now torn down are: The first Civic Center near the curling rink, the floor became a tennis court, the Riverside School, the second Civic Center which burned down, Skeenaview Hospital, and the old Columbia Cellulose offices.  There was a hanger in use at the aiport until 1988 when it burned down.  Another hanger there was sold to Smithers for the sum of $1.00 and is now their skating rink.  Terrace's first fire truck was a left over Air Force Crash Wagon and the first Fire Hall was an army shed.
