Heritage House Tours

In honour of Port Moody’s Centennial year and to celebrate BC Heritage Week, the Port Moody Heritage Society is offering tours through ten homes in neighbourhoods around Port Moody Sunday, February 24th from 10am-4pm. Visitors will be delighted by costumed hosts at each home who will provide information on the architecture and family history of each home.

The self-guided tour includes many homes from the Moody Centre neighbourhood built between 1900 and 1930. To give visitors a full perspective of the development of Port Moody and the impact post-war neighbourhoods had on the city, homes from the Seaview, College Park and Glenayre neighbourhoods are also included. This contrasts traditional Edwardian style homes with the mid-century modern architecture seen in the 1950s and 60s.

According to Museum Manager Jim Millar, “People don’t often associate post-war homes with heritage. However, it is getting harder and harder to find these homes in their original state. The homes in these neighbourhoods reflect a unique style of architecture and a shift in thinking about what a home or neighbourhood should be.”

In addition to the house tours, participants will be served tea and treats at Moody Elementary courtesy of the school Parent Advisory Council.centenniallogosmall

Tickets are $30 including HST and can be ordered online or at the Port Moody Station Museum. For more information contact the Museum at info@portmoodymuseum.org or 604-939-1648.

New Scouting Display Opens November 24

Scouting: History in the Making

Created in partnership with the 40th Canadian Baden-Powell Guild (Tri-Cities), the Port Moody Station Museum is proud to present Scouting: History in the Making. The display highlights the changes in the scouting movement over the past century.

Rope Making

Scouting was first established in Port Moody and much of North America in the 1920s. Since this time the movement has changed greatly. While the emphasis on community service remains a central part of the movement, how this service takes shape looks much different. Even staple activities like camping have been altered with the consideration of environmentalism. This interactive display illustrates these changes and what the scouting movement looked like then and now.

The display includes special program days for visitors to participate in scouting activities, both old and new. Wendy Williams, Guild Master of the 40th said, “We wanted the display to be engaging, keeping the OUT in scouting. So we included weekends and evenings of programs that show, hands-on how scouting has changed with the times.”

The display opens at the Museum November 24th with special pioneering activities for opening weekend.  Additional weekend and evening activities will take place for the duration of the display. For more details, check out our Upcoming Events page. Like scouting, the programs go on rain or shine. The display ends on March 10th, 2013.
