3 JASPER HOUSE HOTEL | HUB HOTEL, 1882
Starting an entrepreneurial career with this hotel, James Goodridge and his family remained influential for more than 80 years. The many small hotels in settler Edmonton housed newcomers, visitors, and railroad workers, and many of these buildings became rooming houses. Originally wood frame, this structure was upgraded by the Goodridges with brick and stone. Renamed the Empress in 1920 and the Hub in 1940, it has been renovated many times – the original design recreated at Fort Edmonton Park.
