Former Prince Albert City Hall now Prince Albert Arts Centre is a National Historic Site of Canada[1] located at 1010 Central Ave. Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada. Construction on this city Hall started in 1892, and was completed 1893. A. and W.B. Goodfellow Builders built the city hall with clock tower, opera house, and meeting room. As well as being a heritage site, it is still in operation today as an arts centre for various visual arts clubs and galleries for exhibitions.[2] Between 1911 and 1937, the old City Hall helped to house the Prince Albert Public Library in its upstairs rooms.[3]
