Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

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.
