North Shore Heritage held its summer social event at the newly restored Vinson House in West Vancouver on Sunday, July 21, 2019.
The Vance Residence, located at 1-620 West 15th Street, North Vancouver, is a two-and-one-half storey plus basement Edwardian era wood-frame house, located at the end of a cul-de-sac adjacent to a ravine.
When Carol Howie and her family decided to sell their 1913 craftsman home on West Vancouver’s Gordon Avenue, they feared the heritage home, known as Vinson House, would be purchased for its lot value and bulldozed. Instead, the home has been given a brand new lease on life.
Visitors to Lynn Headwaters Regional Park are familiar with the BC Mills House Museum, which has sat near the entrance to the park since 1995, but how many know its history?
