Delegates will be streaming into Chilliwack this week for the B.C. Historical Federation’s annual conference.
They will be taking in lectures, workshops, field trips and an awards banquet.
“This is a unique opportunity for conference attendees to get a glimpse inside some of Chilliwack’s finest heritage buildings,” said Laura Reid, a board member of Heritage Chilliwack Society.
Members of the Heritage Chilliwack Society will be leading conference delegates on a Downtown Historic Walking tour on Friday afternoon.
“They will see examples of adaptive re-use, learn how St. Thomas was moved to its current location, and step inside a beautifully restored heritage designated home,” Reid said.
The walking tour will showcase three downtown buildings ranging from a re-purposed fire hall, a grand heritage home, to St. Thomas Anglican Church, built circa 1897.
The conference wraps up on Sunday, May 28.
