A fun musical adventure for the whole family.



Coquitalm Heritage

Coquitlam Heritage Society’s mission is to preserve, honour & promote the heritage of Coquitlam through outreach in the form of events, workshops and the operation of Mackin House Museum.

Mackin House is an Edwardian home built in 1909 as a company home for the second in command at the Fraser Mills Lumber Company. It is staged with period appropriate furniture and artifacts to give visitors a sense of what life in Coquitlam would have been like for someone living in the upper middle class. We have rotating yearly exhibits that highlight aspects of Coquitlam’s rich history and culture.
