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.
