Abbotsford's agricultural riches attracted many pioneers and vestiges of those days are evident throughout the valley in turn-of-the-century farmhouses, historic villages and homesteads.
For example, Mill Lake was once the focus of a thriving mill operation (hence its name). It provided lumber for many original homesteads, including Trethewey House and the Sikh Temple which today, as the oldest standing Gurdwara temple in Canada, is a National Historic Site.
Established in 1905 by the Maclure family, Clayburn Village was British Columbia's first company town; it processed high grade clay from Sumas Mountain into bricks that were exported as far away as Mexico and Hawaii. In its heyday in the early 1920s, The Clayburn Company employed 40 men and produced 40,000 bricks a day in a community that supported three stores, a bank, a school and a church.
