Hastings Mill Museum

1575 Alma Street, Vancouver

The Hastings Mill Store is thought to be the oldest building in Vancouver. It is one of the very few to remain unscathed after the great fire of 1886, that destroyed a good part of Vancouver at the time. In 1930 the store was moved from Burrard Inlet to its present site where Alma Street meets Point Grey Road. The Museum is open to the public and staffed by members of the Native Daughter of British Columbia. This site of city history houses a collection of pioneer and native artifacts, including photos, furniture, clothing and baskets. Admission is free but donations are welcome.
