When this hotel was torn down in the 1950s, the lumber, etc. was carted to Cartwright, MB where it was used to build the Prince Charles Hotel. Unfortunately, the Prince Charles burned down just a few years after it was built.

Here is a quote from Beckoning Hills 1956 edition by R. F. Chapman.

We bought a threshing machine, a Sawyer Massey engine, portable and a 36 inch
separator for $36.00. As this was satisfactory we threshed this way for seventeen years.”
