THE NORTHWEST has three more heritage sites packed with history.

At its Feb. 14 meeting, the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine formally recognized the Dorreen General Store and Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Station, the Grand Trunk Pacific Roundhouse at Pacific and the Meanskinisht Cemetery as heritage sites by adding them to the community heritage registry for the regional district.

Director Dave Brocklebank of Telegraph Creek and director for the city of Terrace Marylin Davies moved that the board accept the statements of significance for the three locations.

That brings the number of Regional District Community Heritage Sites to 11.

The others are Telegraph Creek townsite, the Yukon Telegraph Trail, Gunanoot Gravesite, Meziadin River Fish Ladders, Anyox Powerhouse, Hagwilget Bridge, Old Skeena Bridge and Butedale Cannery.
