At 1803 Voght Street and now a thrift shop, we have no idea what purpose the building originally served. It is a rather nice looking building, though, and fairly representative of the architectural style of the period. Someone, possibly, the thrift shop itself, has done a nice job of the restoration and paint job on the exterior.

The Nicola Valley Health Care Auxiliary recently celebrated their 100th anniversary. It is possible, then, that they have occupied this building since its construction in 1926.

The building is number 23 on the Merritt Heritage Walking Tour
