Historic road show planned for Heritage Week

Dann's Electronics at 5657 176 Street in Cloverdale celebrated 89 years in business in 2010. The building was constructed in 1920 and was originally a Royal Bank branch.

Three local heritage experts invite you along for the ride this Saturday for a special bus tour of Surrey as part of Heritage Week.

The historic road show has a jam-packed agenda, covering 30 sites in nine original town centres, and highlighting Surrey’s unique architectural, natural and cultural assets, from heritage trails and rail restoration projects to significant trees, homes, halls, churches, farms and theatres, original road names, monuments and markers.

The tour ends with tea and treats at the Historic Stewart Farm, a restored heritage farmhouse at 13723 Crescent Road.

A representative from the City of Surrey’s Heritage Advisory Commission will talk about the city’s efforts to preserve Surrey’s history, including buildings and natural assets. There will also be a special guest on the tour who has done extensive research on the 1861 Kennedy Trail.

It’s hosted by the Historic Stewart Farm on Feb. 19 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fee is $18 per person (ages 16 and over).

Space is limited. Register by calling 604-592-6956.
