Clayburn Village Museum open for the season

The Clayburn Village Schoolhouse Museum in Abbotsford welcomes visitors from June to August on Saturdays between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Come and learn about BC’s first “company town,” built in 1905 by the Clayburn Company (brick manufactures). The village provided employee housing and services for 25 years. It is now a Heritage Conservation Area.

The Museum is located at 4315 Wright Street, Abbotsford, BC. Contact Helene Sundberg at 604 854-3960 for further information.

New this year: The City of Abbotsford has obtained one of the oldest remaining settler houses in Abbotsford — the Turner House, built in 1875 — and will be moving it to the original Clayburn Industries Brick Plant site in Clayburn Village. Stay tuned for further developments regarding the preservation of existing artifacts and development of the property as a park area. For more information on this project, read the story in the Abbotsford News.
