Port Moody's heritage resources are a key component of the community’s identity. Many people see Port Moody’s uniqueness not only in its small town atmosphere, but also in its heritage character and its historical link to British Columbia’s past. The city has a rich history starting with the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885, the creation of the port, the building of the Ioco refinery in 1915 and the opening of several sawmills at the turn of the century.
Port Moody has distinct districts with special heritage value and/or heritage character.
We have identified these areas for heritage conservation purposes to provide long-term protection to distinct heritage areas. Our heritage assets include:
- Award properties
- Heritage register properties
- Municipally designated heritage sites
- Stone markers
- Heritage Vinyl wraps (historical images wrapped around utility boxes).
You're now able to take self-guided tours of Port Moody's heritage assets thanks to a colourful new Heritage and Public Art Guide. We encourage you to check out the online version of the heritage map today and enjoy your tour!
