The former British Columbia Penitentiary opened in 1878 and operated for 102 years until it closed in 1980. It was the first Canadian federal penitentiary west of Manitoba. The same site previously housed the Royal Engineers, the founders of the city that became the first capital of the colony of British Columbia. The majority of the penitentiary was torn down with the exception of two buildings, including the Gatehouse (pictured), which is now used for commercial purposes.
