Over the last ten years the Heritage Vancouver Society has released its list of the Top Ten Endangered Sites in Vancouver and the 2011 list is now out.

  • Schools: Carleton (1896, 1908 to 1912)

  • Carleton School 1912. Archives Item# LGN496
  • Schools: Kitchener (1914 & 1924)
  • Schools: Sexsmith (1912 & 1913)
  • Shannon Estate (1915 to 1925)
  • Strathcona North of Hastings
  • Gordon T. Legg Residence (1899)
  • Collingwood Library (1951)
  • Lower Mount Pleasant
  • Granville Street (1888 on)
  • 2400 Motel (1946)
  • As you can see, several Vancouver schools top the list of most-threatened buildings in the city. “In recognition of the magnitude of this threat, our top three sites illustrate the main threats to Vancouver’s historic schools: closure, redundancy and demolition,” stated the Heritage Vancouver Society online. “These ten sites represent the many challenges that we have in building a future for heritage in Vancouver.”

    The Vancouver Historical Society will be hosting a free public event at the Museum of Vancouver on Thursday, February 24th at 7:30pm. Donald Luxton will give a talk on each of the sites on the 2011 list if you would like to learn more.
