Remembrance Day WWI New Self-Guided Veterans Walking Tour

Presented by the New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society with support from the New Westminster Museum and Archives.

Created by City of New Westminster Museum Dept.

While it’s not possible for us to gather in remembrance, there are other ways to come together and commemorate with those close to you. New Westminster Museum has compiled a map showing the family homes of 19 New Westminster veterans.  Interpretive posters telling their stories were created by New Westminster’s Heritage Preservation Society and researched and written by local historian Jim Wolf. Museum staff will place these posters along the street outside each of the homes listed on the map for people to explore at their own pace – City of New Westminster
