Trethewey House Heritage Site is operated by Heritage Abbotsford Society, a registered charity. The Heritage Site consists of Trethewey House, Joeys Playhouse, the Upper Sumas Train Station, Heritage Gallery, and the Sylvia Pincott Heritage Habitat Garden. Trethewey House was built in 1919-1920 by Joseph Ogle J.O. Trethewey. President of the Abbotsford Lumber Company, J.O. was responsible for leadership of the company during the companys boom years in the 1920s. The House is built Craftsman-style and was constructed using primarily local materials, making it distinct from other buildings of similar age within the City of Abbotsford. Trethewey House contains old-growth Abbotsford fir lumber (processed at the Trethewey mill on Mill Lake), and brick and tile crafted from clay mined on Sumas Mountain (processed at Clayburn Village, B.C.s first company town), representing two of Abbotsfords most important early industries. Our house tour drop in hours are from 1-4pm, Monday-Friday.
