Historic Stewart Farm is set to offer guided, outdoor tours of its South Surrey property.
Tours of the popular heritage site, which is located at 13723 Crescent Rd., will be available Tuesday to Friday afternoons, from 1-3:30 p.m., a news release issued Monday notes.
Described as a “new, modified service,” the tours will be limited to 10 people or less, and pre-registration with a MySurrey account – available at www.surrey.ca/culture-recreation/1697.aspx – is required. Tours are available every 30 minutes.
Highlights of the 30-minute tours will include the 1894 farmhouse, pole barn, heirloom gardens, root cellar, boat building and former threshing shred. Visitors will learn about the history of the farm, and the Stewart family themselves.
Physical distancing will be enforced on each tour, and all other buildings on the South Surrey property will be closed.
“With people staying safe and closer to home this summer, I encourage Surrey residents to get out and explore all that Surrey has to offer,” Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum said in the release.
”Historic Stewart Farm’s heritage tours are a great options for families to discover our local history and enjoy some time outdoors.”
