The Homefront: Our Town, WWI Activities in South Hill

Join tour guide, Issac Vanderhorst and explore the old community of South Hill, a typical working class Canadian town of 100 years ago where everyone was directly affected by the war. Imagine what life was like as you walk by the houses of the young soldiers and their fathers who worked in the ship building plant, Southill Elementary School, home to rallies and cadets, and the Soldier’s Centre, a drop in for soldiers and a hub for the women’s fundraising efforts. The tour takes place October 5, 2014 and starts at 10:00 am at South Memorial Park Cenotaph (5955 Ross St, Vancouver, BC) and ends at 12:00 noon at the Mountainview Cemetery (5455 Fraser St, Vancouver, BC). Heritage Vancouver members $10; Non-members $15. To register click here.
