It always good to hear of successful communities and their economic development strategies. Sounds like Fort Langley nailed it.
EH Canada Marketing Group they sure did. They could have easily let development go where it wanted, but they chose to protect the community's heritage and to preserve the buildings. It was a smart call, because it fostered the wonderful sense of community and appreciation for history and culture. In doing so, it became a destination drawing people from all over the Lower Mainland.
What a cute place! Great photos showcasing Langley. I will certainly know where to go if I find myself near there. Thanks for sharing!
YAY for Farmhouse in Provence that I noted has both Espresso and Black Licorice artisan ice cream. What to do now with that decision choice. I agree that the community has done an excellent job in pulling the historical and antiques theme throughout leaving an impression with visitors. Nice review Janet!
