The Kenricia Hotel
Vol. 17 No. 3
This year, exactly 100 years from the date that the contract was awarded for the construction of the Tourist Hotel (as it was originally known), the historic Kenora landmark is being considered for heritage designation by the Kenora City Council. On the recommendation of the Municipal Heritage Committee, Heritage Kenora, Council has made known their intention to designate this fine building which represents for the community one of its earliest efforts in attracting tourists to the town. As well, the architecture of the building, while having undergone some changes over its 100-year history, is noted in being Northern Ontario¹s best example of a Beaux-Arts influenced hotel.
