Old Hastings Mill Store Museum (The)
At the foot of Alma Street in Point Grey , you will find this small wooden structure that is considered to be the oldest existing building in Vancouver. Built in 1865, Hastings Mill Museum was once a center of trade and commerce for the ships that passed through the young port city of Vancouver. This site of city history houses a collection of pioneer and native artifacts, including photos, furniture, clothing and baskets. This famous museum has seasonal timings, please call ahead for details.

I have visited at least a dozen times and still find new and interesting pieces of history.

The old style atmosphere of turn of the century dwellings is something to behold and to remind us of how fortunate we are to live in our day and age. Children will especially love all the curios and childrens old toys.
This tiny museum is housed in Vancouver's oldest building. Built in 1865, it was moved to its present site in 1930, and is currently operated as a private museum, admission by donation. It's run by the Native Daughters of BC- a group of women well into their eighties, as far as I can tell. But you're guaranteed to hear a story or two as you peruse the eclectic treasures housed in assorted glass cases, and enjoy the old photos of Vancouver in its infancy. Don't bother paying big money for glitsy historical re-enactments; this place has it all!
