Tour of the Heritage House 2022 online
The Vancouver Heritage Foundation’s popular Heritage House Tour returns this year in virtual format! Through a series of curated video tours and our exclusive Heritage House Tour web portal, we will explore the stories of six unique properties in the city. We’ll learn about their past and present, their early architects, builders and inhabitants, and how they were restored and adapted to modern life. This year we will visit a Mission Revival building in Hastings-Sunrise that has been converted into residential townhouses; an award-winning Tudor-Revival cottage in 1928; a large Edwardian commercial building; a 1912 craftsman’s house in Kitsilano lovingly restored by its current owner; a first passive solar house in Dunbar Southlands; and a Dutch Colonial Revival house in Marpole that has been turned into a community museum. We’ll showcase original interior features, unique craftsmanship and designs, and explore the history and heritage significance of each of these special properties. Tour participants will have exclusive access to our special Heritage House Tour online web portal where they can view curated video tours as well as a collection of photographs highlighting property details. During the two live events on May 31 and June 2, we will showcase the video tours and have special presentations from heritage professionals and owners who will delve into the historical aspects of the properties and then answer questions from the public.
