Join us tomorrow for an artist trading cards workshop with Mary Peterson Bennett starting at 1pm under the theme “Women Are Persons”! We’ll also be showcasing a special photo album, from our archive, of Agnes Deans Cameron’s 1908 expedition up the Mackenzie River to the Arctic (she championed for women’s rights and was a school teacher at the Hastings Mill School)!

Happy Labour Day! Here are celebrations in 1898 showing Hastings Sawmill wagons on parade (and our building tucked away in the background). Photo from the Vancouver Archives.

Today marks 88 years since our building was moved by barge by Captain J. Cates & Sons from Burrard Inlet, through the Lions Gate and across English Bay to its current location at the foot of Alma street! It was captured on film, by the original moving company, F.W. Gosse. •

This Sunday July 22nd we will be hosting author Lisa Anne Smith for an illustrated presentation on Vancouver's first nurse, Emily Patterson. When the Patterson family first arrived at Hastings Mill in 1873, Emily took it upon herself to serve as doctor and nurse to anyone in need of medical care. Her remarkable skills were self-taught out of necessity during many years of travel and living in remote communities. Celebrate Emily's 182nd birthday with tea and sweets while you learn about her heroic adventures. This event is fully accessible, doors open at 1:00pm, the presentation begins at 1:15pm. *Entry by donation.

While previously the Hastings Sawmill townsite had focused on Sewell Moody's July 4th celebrations, by 1873 Richard H. Alexander (Hastings Mill bookkeeper) initiated the separate celebration of July 1st to commemorate BC joining confederation (in 1871). Captain James Raymur (manager of the Hastings Mill as of 1869) organized these early Dominion Day celebrations at the Hastings Mill with free-of-charge events and activities. The Hastings Sawmill Company continued to sponsor these celebrations which grew in number and popularity! Happy Canada Day!!

She climbed up on these painted trunk pieces. She was scared of the height she was at and wouldnt stand up. Just because it isn't scary for us we need to remember it can still be scary for the little ones. She had me pick her up and put her down on the ground safely.

“This home is an ‘Edwardian Box’ pattern book design, which was popular for its practical layout. The home was probably built in 1905 by John Holmes as a rental property. At that time, the then-called East End was well-located neighbourhood near the port, Hastings Mill and the business district of Gastown. The first resident was Walter Warner, a BC Sugar draftsman.” (Vancouver Heritage Foundation)

This is the Hastings Mill Store museum, located in Point Grey, Vancouver. It is the oldest surviving building in Vancouver, and dates back to the 1870’s, when it was located at the foot of Dunlevy Ave. at Burrard Inlet. This was the site of Hastings Mill, essentially a company town that formed the essential beginnings of Vancouver as we now know it. It was one of the only buildings to survive the great fire of 1886, at which time it was used as a hospital and morgue. #vancouver #history #historicalbuilding #originsofvancouver #hastingsmill #hastingsmillstore #pointgrey
