Avalon Dairy


Tour & Reception: A Special Evening at Avalon Dairy

Tuesday, September 18, 2012 | 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Tickets: $25 (includes reception with food and non-alcoholic beverages)
Location: Tour will meet at the Avalon Farmhouse at 5805 Wales Street (at 43rd Avenue)

Join Heritage Vancouver President, Donald Luxton, for a tour of the Avalon Dairy site prior to its redevelopment. This is a final opportunity to explore the last remnant of what was one of the longest-running and last working farms in Vancouver, dating from a time when South Vancouver was primarily an agricultural area.

Following the tour, you are invited to mingle, share stories, and enjoy food and non-alcoholic beverages at the historic Avalon Dairy.

This special evening will celebrate Avalon Dairy and the early rural history of South Vancouver, and will include a tour of other historic properties along Wales Street. Although the dairy itself has shut down, the original Edwardian-era farmhouse, built by Avalon founder Jeremiah Crowley in 1908, survives and will be preserved. Donald Luxton, the heritage consultant for the redevelopment, grew up in South Vancouver and has first-hand knowledge of an area of the city that has changed dramatically over time.

All proceeds support Heritage Vancouver Society's initiatives to conserve Vancouver's built heritage.
