Our History in Pictures – Vernon landmark

Who remembers the National Hotel?

You’d have to be a long-time Vernon resident to remember it.

But for those who have been around for a while, the National Hotel was a downtown Vernon staple.

Located on Barnard Avenue (the southeast corner of 30th Street and 30th Avenue), its was deemed the Okanagan’s friendliest hotel by some. The intersection was known as Hotel Corner with the Allison Hotel on the northeast corner, and Kalamalka Hotel on the southwest corner.

But the historic National Hotel building was torn down and is now replaced by Monashee’s Wine, Spirits and Beer store.
