The Clova Theatre, an Interurban train station and the 1873 Semiahmoo Trail are a few of the highlights featured on a heritage bus tour offered by historic Stewart Farm.

Join the curator of Stewart Farm, who will share little-known stories about Surrey’s oldest neighbourhoods and heritage buildings, landmarks you may drive past every day.

Along with the Clova theatre, which served as a community movie house for almost 70 years, the tour will include Hall’s Prairie, Crescent Beach, and the original Surrey Centre.

A Surrey heritage planner will be on board to answer questions and offer insight into the city’s heritage planning activities.

The tour ends with a stop at the Stewart farmhouse’s cosy kitchen for tea and treats baked in the wood-fired stove.

There are two tours: Thursday, Feb. 19 or Saturday, Feb. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cost is $25 (ages 16 and up). Space is limited, so pre-registration is required. Call 604-592-6956.

Historic Stewart Farm is located at 13723 Crescent Road, in South Surrey. It’s open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays, from noon to 4 p.m. Entrance is by donation. For more information, call 604-592-6956 or visit surrey.ca/heritage.
