If you couldn't join us live, come take a virtual tour across five different neighbourhoods at your own pace. We will visit a 1958 award-winning Mid-Century Modern home, an 1890s Strathcona home, a grand Shaughnessy estate home, a 1928 apartment, and more. We will enjoy original interior features, craftsmanship, and unique design, and explore the history and heritage significance of each house. While we cannot step through the doors together this year, we hope you will join us for this special opportunity to tour inside remarkable homes – exclusively available for the virtual Heritage House Tour.

The virtual presentation will include historical context and stories by the author of Daughters in the City Ruth Derksen Siemens and the Mennonite Museum Society’s Director, Richard Thiessen. We will present the Places That Matter plaque and share details of its installation in South Vancouver.
