The “big white house” can be found on the same block as the most familiar landmark in Vernon, the Court House. It was built in 1932 for the manager of the Hudson Bay Company. Over the years it had several owners before Dr. Murray Kievit purchased the building in September, 2004.
The ‘Grand Old Lady’ has now been lovingly restored to her former glory and with a new purpose when The White House Wellness Center opened in September, 2006. The renovations incorporated the existing architecture with the curved walls in the hallway mimicked in the curved arches and alcoves. The stunning stained glass windows were preserved, and the original maple and fir hardwood refurbished. The rose wood inlay on the floors was carried through into the custom made cabinetry and desks.
The White House Wellness Center is located at 3107 - 27th Street in Vernon, BC. Vernon is situated in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, famous for its lovely landscape, warm lakes, wineries, orchards, and abundant outdoor activity.
