Modern-day fairy tale series Once Upon a Time’s fictional Storybrooke includes storefronts on Moncton Street in the village of Steveston and other store fronts 50 kilometres away on Glover Road in the village of Fort Langley.  This week Once Upon a Time returned to Fort Langley after more than a year’s absence, turning the historic yellow-and-white Community Hall into the Storybrooke Town Hall.
