Prince George Historical Houses - The Corless House

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with RE/MAX Centre City Realty
I thought I would do a series about some of the heritage and historical homes and buildings in Prince George.
 
The first is the Corless House located at 1276 Fourth Avenue.  I thought I would begin here as most residents and visitors will recognize this house located downtown which currently houses the JJ Springer shop.

The house was built in 1917 by Charlie Sinclair then, with a Soldier's Settlement Loan of $3000 was purchased the  by Jack Duncan.  An addition to the rear of the home was built by Dick Corless, and the Corless family resided in the home from 1919 to 1947.
 
Dick Corless was a businessman and worked at various times as a car dealer, undertaker, coffin maker and furniture dealer.
 
Over the years the building has housed various businesses such as a dress shop and real estate office, but it still shows it original character through the symmetrical facade, shingle siding, and the roof pediment over the small upper window.

Caring expertise...knowledge for you!

Very nice idea...I think most people appreciate the "lore" of an area, and character homes are full of history.
