Press Release from the Village of Anmore About the Destruction of the Old Village Hall (31-01-18) Click Here. The funders 'loved the proposal' to create the 'Anmore Welcome Centre and 'Newspapering' Murray Museum' in the restored homestead. The Anmore Heritage Society (AHS) was too new, Heritage BC was provincially chartered, Canadian Heritage suggested that the Village become the applicant for the $500,000 Legacy grant to restore the homestead.  It meant replacing the first two pages (applicant) of the 250 page plus application prepared by the AHS, in collaboration with Heritage BC, and slightly modifying the budget. The Village Council agreed to do this, but later Council decided instead to build a replica or an entrance to the new village hall they want to build on the site. The Legacy grant was only available for the 100th anniversary of the homestead and was lost.
