Referred to, informally, as “Vancouver’s Greatest Hits,” this tour is replete with one remarkable building after another. The historical anchor of the tour is the House of Providence. Commonly known as “The Academy”, this structure is one of the most significant pieces of historic architecture in the Northwest. Completed in 1874, the Academy is the earliest remaining example of many charitable institutions built throughout the region by Mother Joseph of the Sisters of Providence.
Other sites included on this tour are Vancouver’s 1909 Library, the Lowell M. Hidden House, Kiggins Theatre, and much more.
