Once Upon a Time Film Locations- Part Two

Be sure to check the links and information in the previous post. ABC of course owns O.U.A.T, but I did get the screen caps from Screencapped.  As well, any location that also has been used for Supernatural can be found at Supernatural Locations (stops at Season 9 Episode 5) and/or SPN Locations Live Journal. Both are REALLY good sites, super talented and devoted fans. I am impressed! Thanks to there information I'm pretty sure I found where Zelena's Farm House is located in Season 3 and The Abandoned Mansion Belle finds in Season 4. Both were SPN locations that looked familiar.

Burnaby B.C
Sisters of Saint Melissa (Mother Superior a.k.a Blue)- Burnaby Art Gallery 6344 Deer Lake Avenue, Burnaby, B.C. Seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 19 SEASON 2; Episode 15 and 18 SEASON 3; Episode 10.

Langley B.C
Storeybrooke Town Hall- Langley Community Hall 9167 Glover Road Fort Langley, B.C.  Seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 8, 11, and 14 SEASON 2; Episode 2 and 18 SEASON 3; Episode 13.  The main road it's on (Glover Rd) is adorable and historic too. It's full of restaurants, antiques, and cute shops. If you plan to visit the town hall, make sure you plan to be there the day, give your self time to shop and visit other historic buildings such as Fort Langley. Vancouver is Awesome has some fun articles with pictures of filming at the Town Hall. There is a large meeting area inside that can be rented for weddings and things, which was used in O.U.A.T.

Storeybrooke Street- 9200 Block, Glover Road Langley B.C. Seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 14.
Emma and Mary Margaret are talking while walking down the street near the town hall.
*Also in Supernatural Glover Rd and Glover Rd Bridge 

Coquitlam B.C

Storeybrooke Hospital- Riverview Hospital East Lawn Building 2601 Lougheed Hwy Coquitlam, B.C.  The outside of the East Lawn Building only appears once in SEASON 1; Episode 19. These are all inside shots and don't include John Doe's (Prince Charming) hospital room or Belle in the Asylum since they were filmed at Lynn Valley Library. Seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 3 and 5, 15, 19, and 22. SEASON 2; Episode 12 and 19 SEASON 3; Episode 13, 15, and 20.  There are a lot of cool buildings at the Riverview Hospital and it's easy to get lost. I wish they offered tours, I would have loved that.

New Westminster B.C
Regina's Home- John H. McDonald House, 417 5th Street New Westminster, B.C. Seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 1, 4, 6, 7, 10, 18, 20, and 21 SEASON 2; Episode 1, 2, 10, 12, 14, and 17 SEASON 3; Episode 18 SEASON 4; Episode1.   It's about three blocks from Golds Mansion. It's gorgeous.  At some point this was for sale from Frank Wright Remax. Did O.U.A.T buy it? Not sure, but there is a link here where you can watch a video tour of this house of both inside and outside. After watching it, the inside shots are most defiantly done inside the house. There is also a link to the New Westminster Heritage Page with interesting information about the house.
Gold's Home- Charles Murray Residence, 403 St.George Street New Westminster, B.C. Seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 12 SEASON 2; Episode 4.   It was for sale when we visited, not sure if it's sold yet but I couldn't find anything online about it's listing. This is also why we went on to the property briefly to take some pictures. We were respectful, we didn't go peeping into windows or saunter on the lawn. Also Historic Places Canada site has a write up of interesting information about this house.

North Vancouver B.C

Granny's Bed and Breakfast- Haswell Residence 910 E. Grand Blvd North Vancouver, B.C. Seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 1 and 6 SEASON 2; Episode 1 SEASON 3; Episode 1.   It's on the corner and hidden by trees. So just park and get out and walk around the outside of the fence. We got some nice pictures from the entrance. As mentioned above, a bedroom from inside is a set at the Library, so I assume the entrance is as well and just the outside of this location is used. Historic Places Canada site has a write up of this house as well.

Map came from The Murdo Frazer Park website, link above.
Gold's Cabin- Murdo Frazer Park Caretakers Cottage 2720 Pemberton Ave North Vancouver, B.C.  Seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 10, 12, and 19.   It's a bit hidden. There is a private road that goes over a creek onto the property. It's on the right, but there is a parking lot on the left as there is a park and trail to walk. North Vancouver District has a section of their site for Filming Locations in Nature/Parks. They have links to pictures of the outside and inside of this cabin. We didn't know it was a park when Chelsea found the address, we do hope to take our other sister and will plan to walk around.  
*Also in Supernatural
Sheriff's Office- Old Lynn Valley Library 2747 Mt. Hwy North Vancouver, B.C. Outside of building seen in: SEASON 1; Episode 1  SEASON 2; Episode 7. Inside of building only of Sheriff set, seen in: SEASON 1;  Episode 1, 7, 18, and 19 SEASON 2; Episode 10 SEASON 3; Episode 20.    The link is to the same North Vancouver District site showing what it looks like from both the outside and inside, for those looking to rent the space for filming. The location was hard to find, we pulled into a small shopping complex to ask and no one knew what we were talking about. We discovered it as we drove around. It's actually sort of in the parking lot, behind the complex. It's hard to describe, but there is also an Esso gas station on the street in front of it. So if you turn right at the Esso, its directly on the right.  This is also where they film other interior shots, you can see the wood from the sets in the photos.

According to Vancity Buzz (Fri May 31, 2013),
"The exterior of the old Lynn Valley library stands in for Emma’s office, while inside you’ll find sets for the sheriff’s office and town jail cell, as well as the insane asylum where the queen held Belle prisoner for 28 years, a hospital room, classroom, a bed and breakfast room. The interior sets are closed to the public, but given that so many pivotal scenes are filmed at this location, it’s easy for fans to catch a glimpse of filming taking place on a fairly regular basis."
Also a great article on North Shore News, By Rosalind Duane, called Once Upon a Time: Hit series settling into old North Vancouver library site. A visit to Once Upon a Time's North Vancouver set February 3, 2012.  The article is missing, but if you follow the link the pictures are still there. JM0LOVE, copied the article and posted it to her forum a few years ago (great job!). Which is where I'm getting the following quote from;
"The old Lynn Valley library is nestled in a picturesque nook of the neighbourhood, and on this day, the sun made a rare visit, spotlighting nearby Mount Fromme and its partner peak to the east...While the exterior of the old library stands in as the outside of the sheriff's station on the show, the interior of the building has been transformed into multiple sets.

Taking up various rooms on the first floor are the sheriff's office (complete with cells), a patient's room at an insane asylum, and a few other odds and ends. Upstairs, large wood flats separate a newspaper office, a bed-and-breakfast room, a psychiatrist's office, a classroom, and the hospital room that fans of the show will recognize as John Doe's room.

"We've shot pretty much every nook and cranny in this building, including bits and pieces in the parking lot," says executive producer Steve Pearlman during a tour of the old library space.

Pearlman recently spent two years shooting the TV series V in and around Vancouver, and had scouted the old Lynn Valley library as a possible overflow set for that show. The site was appealing because the building was empty and it was close to other shooting locations being used around the Lower Mainland.

"When we shot the pilot for Once Upon a Time last spring, we needed a sheriff's station and we came back here kind of for the same reasons. We didn't have sound stages on the pilot. We needed to build a sheriff's office, and this room kind of worked," explains Pearlman. "Then when the show got picked up for series, we just moved in and we took out a lease on the building." He says it has been handy having a base in North Vancouver. "If we have half a day where we can work in Lynn Canyon, we can come back here and it's a very easy move for us to make in one day; or we can keep all of our trucks here, based out of here, instead of driving our trucks all over the North Shore.""

T(r)oll Bridge- Spur 4 Bridge Rice Lake Rd, North Vancouver B.C. Seen in: SEASON 1;  Episode 3, 6, 11, 15, and 18. This one was tough to find, we weren't able to find it so we will have to try again. We ended up at Lynn Canyon Park, but it's much farther north in what I think is Seymoure Provincial Park. There's a map on Movie Maps that looks like it's half way between Lynn Canyon Park and Seymoure Lake.

Lot's of filming done on the outside, not sure about the inside as it mentioned there's a classroom at Lynnvalley. Also found a super cute promo photo of Henry in front of the school.
Ostria- Brix Resteraunt 1138 Homer Street, Vancouver, B.C in Yaletown.  Where Emma  is eating outside with new boyfriend in "NewYork" YVRshoots, they also have another article about this episode here. We didn't know about this location but will go and eat there the next time were in Vancouver.

Richmond B.C

Richmond is actually a large city that sort of grew into Steveston, which is where Storeybrooke is located. You can check out a cool site at Tourism Richmond if your interested. I also got a lot of information about Storeybrooke locations from In Steveston. They also have a link to a site called OUATfanpodcast, with an awesome breakdown picture of the the Moncton street which I'm including.

We also got a lot of information from Shirley from The Candy Dish. About where they shoot, when, how much time it takes, how they get notices, etc. One of the stories she told us, was that they used to lease Mr. Gold's Pawn shop and film inside, but someone dropped the ball and didn't renew it. So they had to move out their stuff when the current It's Posh store took over the lease. That's why Mr. Gold vinyl lettering can still be found on the windows. She said "someone defiantly lost their job over that one." She told us how the actors come in and buy candy. She even has pictures and autographs in her window. Shirley was so sweet and her store is so cute. It's full of delicious local and foreign treats. I personally loved the Finland Black Liquorice. She also makes a variety of OUAT inspired treats, such as Snow White's fudge, which is bubble gum flavoured. You can also donate $2 to the local food bank for a Steveston map with film locations.

A lot of scenes in Steveston are filmed in front of the brick building, which is actually known as the Hepworth Building. Historic information can be found at Richmond.ca
