Burnaby, British Columbia
Where history comes to life. Stroll down the streets of our 1920s village exploring the heritage & replica buildings. Period costumed townsfolk give demonstrations in the homes, businesses & shops: watch the blacksmith at forge, listen to the rhythm of the platen press, mind the teacher in the schoolhouse, catch an old movie in the theatre & hear stories about the Love family and their Farmhouse. Be sure to take in the elegance of the Interurban #1223; a mode of transportation ahead of its time. A ride on the 1912 CW Parker Carousel is sure to please both the young and the young at heart. The village grounds include gardens, and grassy meadow and fish-bearing brook.
