+ Heritage Vancouver’s Outdoor Walking Tour Program

This Saturday, September 18th, our very successful outdoor walking tour program comes to an end with Sean McEwen’s tour of the Mole Hill Community Housing Project. In this edition of our e-bulletin we pay tribute to our walking tour leaders and bring you an article and photos of our Hippie Kitsilano tour by writer, Rob Howatson.  We would like to pay tribute to the many people who assisted with and participated in our 2010 walking tours. Please send your ideas for topics and tour leaders for next season to info@heritagevancouver.org

Many of you were involved in or remember the successful community effort to restore the West End houses that now make up the Mole Hill Community Housing Project.  Join head architect for the project, Sean McEwen and explore the community and learn about the restoration of the site.

+ Heritage Vancouver’s Tour Leaders

Heritage Vancouver wishes to thank our experienced tour leaders for their generous contribution in creating a greater appreciation for Vancouver's built heritage. Our tour leaders are all unique — their backgrounds, their personalities, and their stories bring Vancouver's historic neighbourhoods to life. Thank you for making these tours possible.

On August 28, Heritage Vancouver’s first President, artist and historian Michael Kluckner had no difficulty recalling stories from the psychedelic era as the former 4th Avenue flower child led a sold-out, Explore Hippie Kitsilano walking tour through the neighbourhood once considered to be Canada’s Haight-Ashbury.
