Community History Centre

Lynn Valley Elementary School was originally built in 1920. The Edwardian Baroque"-style building was designed by local architects Henry Blackadder & Alexander Sinclair Wemyss MacKay. It is now the Community History Centre for North Vancouver. The centre houses the local cultural commission offices, archives reading room, collections, storage, education resource centre and a public meeting room.

Embedded In the walkway at the entrance to the school is a maple leaf, surrounded by memorial bricks remembering some of the people of North Vancouver.

To the side of the walkway are stacks of concrete books of different heights and layouts. A beautiful sight as you approach the old school

Location:North Vancouver
