Description:

On June 13, 1886, there was the Great Vancouver Fire, which took many buildings with it. The Hastings Mill Store was left untouched, leaving it to be Vancouver's oldest building. It wasn't originally at this location, but was built in Gastown and was saved from demolition and put on a barge to it's current location. It opened as a museum in 1931 by the Native Daughters of B.C. Post #1. Lumber has long been a major industry in Canada, and this was once a company store for a lumber operation and Vancouver's first post office. The building itself is quite historic, and inside you will find many more treasures of Vancouver's past.

Closed December through January
