Port Moody Heritage Society

The Port Moody Historical Society (PMHS) began as a group of interested citizens in the mid 1960s with the desire to preserve some of the history of the area and create a museum. The Port Moody Historical Society was incorporated June 15, 1969. In 1978, the Society purchased the Port Moody Station and moved it to its present location on Murray Street and refurbished it to be a museum facility; it officially opened on July 1, 1983. In 1983, the Port Moody Historical Society changed its name to the Port Moody Heritage Society.

Our mission is to promote an appreciation of community heritage by preserving and presenting history through events, exhibits, and programs. Ioco Ghost Town day is a day to get the community together and learn about the history of the site but also learn about the advocacy going on to save the site.
