South Surrey Heritage Driving Tour
Every year, in honour of Heritage Week in BC, The Historic Stewart Farm leads a Heritage Sites Bus Tour in Surrey, featuring different neighbourhoods and sites each year. This year we're sharing a portion of a past tour for you to try yourself. You can simply explore from your home by visiting the links under “More Info” or by watching the Google Earth presentation. Or you can click on the Google Maps link and drive the route yourself. Please be sure to respect private property as well as all traffic laws. This activity features a 23km route of a portion of South Surrey. You can compare homes built in the 1890s to a post-modern residence, look in on a turn-of-the-century cemetery and discover that trees can be heritage sites too. Below there are two orange links to the Tour Guide and the Map of the driving tour, be sure to print both before you start the drive.
This event is free.
City of Surrey, Heritage Services
The City of Surrey Heritage Services Department runs various parts of Heritage within the City of Surrey, including Heritage Collections, Surrey Archives, Re-enactors, and Historic Stewart Farm. The mandate of our division is to share the diverse history of the Municipality of Surrey with our community. Our vision is to create a better community that reflects on the past. Recently as part of our shift towards online programming these institutions have begun to focus on digital and remote programming, instead of in person interpretation. This program is based off of our driving tours, usually on a bus, held with the public seasonally.
