Your Neighbourhood: Foot by Foot

Cloverdale preserves its links to the past

 

Ishraj Rasode dances up and almost immediately starts telling me the history of Eric Anderson’s log cabin that sits on the grounds of the thoroughly modern Surrey Museum in Cloverdale. The cabin is the oldest existing building in Surrey. An early settler, Anderson went to sea on a whaling ship as a boy of 11, leaving behind his family. It’s a fact that seven-year-old Ishraj can’t quite fathom any more than she can imagine living with five others in the one-room cabin.

This is just one of the great stories about many of  our lower mainland neighbourhoods.  Click here for more stories and video clips about our great history brought to you by the Vancouver Sun.
